It’s only May but I already miss the cherry blossoms that bloomed so spectacularly in Tenri just a few weeks ago. I tried to come up with an excuse to post pictures of them even though they are no longer newsworthy anymore. So I came up with this idea of an “Identify that Cherry Blossom” Contest.
Correctly identify the location of the cherry blossoms — by multiple choice, to give people who have never even set foot in Tenri a fair shot — in the ten pictures below and you might win a prize! Winners (and there will be three) will receive a copy of the Ofudesaki (English, Japanese, and Romanization) and a “surprise”!
Simply send an e-mail with your name/alias, country/region, and answers to email@example.com. Please put “Cherry Blossom ID Contest” in the subject heading. Your e-mail should look like this:
Subject: Cherry Blossom ID ContestBody:James / New York, United States1. a2. b3. c4. aetc.
Winners will be later contacted for snail mail information so we can mail you your prizes.
Submissions will be accepted until May
15 20, 2012.
Good luck to everyone! (Click to see the pictures.)
