Savvy Tokyo Sakura Photo Contest 2023
My Sakura, My Way
Submit your best sakura shots for the year for a chance to be featured on Savvy Tokyo, our official Instagram and win a fabulous prize!
Before you know it, sakura season will hit Japan in full bloom. The parks will fill with people celebrating the start of spring and the hanami (flower viewing) festivities will saturate your social media feeds. But the cherry blossom season is also ephemeral. To capture the moment and celebrate all creativity captured on camera (and smartphone), Savvy Tokyo is proud to announce its annual Sakura Photo Contest for 2023.
Your photos could depict anything—from your interpretation of “the blossoms of happiness” or sakura with the family, to love under the cherry blossoms, sakura-themed sweets or anything else that celebrates sakura, families and women in Japan. Photos can be submitted from any prefecture in the country.
