I am wanderlusting for a holiday to Japan for the longest time, to try out all the authentic sushi, sashimi and ramen. Now there is an easy way to stand a chance to win a 5D4N trip to Japan for two!

All you need to do is to pose like the Ayataka Maiko.

Ayataka has become one of my favourite ready-to-drink beverages to pair with some of my favourite local food because it has zero calories. Plus I can enjoy the great taste and cloudiness of authentic Japanese teapot-brewed tea.

How did the maiko come into the picture? In a taste test conducted in Kyoto, Japan, with 100 maiko (apprentice geisha) and geiko (geisha), Ayataka emerged amongst other leading Japanese green tea brands in Singapore as the closest to authentic Japanese teapot brewed tea, as well as the best tasting Japanese green tea. (Study was conducted by Ipsos K.K., amongst 100 maiko & geiko through a face-to-face interview at Kyoto in July 2013.)

To join the Ayataka contest to stand to win a 5D4N trip to Japan for 2 people, there are 3 Simple Steps to follow:

Step 1: Grab Ayataka Japanese Green Tea
Step 2: Pose like the Ayataka Maiko (Both guys and girls can do this! No need for makeup, costumes or props… Just do the pose!)
Step 3: Upload to Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #Ayataka (pictures have to be made on public profile yah?)

I got fellow food blogger Nicole to pose like the Ayataka Maiko.

My version. Obviously, I think you can do a better job than I did.

Here are 3 Tips on how to pose like the Ayataka Maiko
Tip 1: Head should be slightly tilted
Tip 2: Arms at an angle
Tip 3: Present the Ayataka tea clearly

To suss out your competition, you can check out the other entries on Twitter & Instagram with the Hashtag #Ayataka. I must say some of them are pretty creative and entertaining. But since this is a lucky draw, everyone stands an equal chance of winning!

Remember that you just have to do the Ayataka Maiko pose in order to join the contest. There’s no need to dress up like a Maiko, but if you want to have some fun, no one’s stopping you! And guess what… there are no limits to the number of posts you can submit, so the more you posts you upload, the higher your chances of winning!

The contest period is from now till 11th Apr 2014. Grab some Ayataka and pose like the Ayataka Maiko now! Gambatte ne!
