Dear Users,
This campaign aims to produce a promotional video for the English version of COOL JAPAN VIDEOS, to be released in November. We will use dozens of the photos submitted to us, and we will insert your account name into the promotional video along with the selected photos to share them with the world. Our goal is to share the beauty of Japan with the world!

Japan is full of famous tourist spots that everyone knows, as well as wonderful, lesser-known places that are known only to a handful of people. In addition to the four seasons, Japan also has a unique culture and technology that it is proud of, including "Washoku," recognized by UNESCO as an intangible cultural heritage, traditional culture, such as kabuki and Noh, and traditional crafts made by Japanese craftsmen.
We want to share the hidden charms of Japan with the people of the world through "COOL JAPAN VIDEOS."

We also believe that the tourism industry is struggling to overcome the current corona virus situation.
We believe that by submitting photos of Japan to this campaign, many people will be able to learn about the charms of Japan, and this will help to revitalize the tourism industry in places that are struggling.
There are many cases where a previously minor tourist attraction became famous by going viral on social networking sites.
After one month of receiving submissions, COOL JAPAN VIDEOS will share your photos, packed with the beauty of Japan, with the world!

Your photos could help spark someone's interest in visiting Japan after we've overcome the novel corona virus.
Please join us in supporting Japan in its struggle against corona!
Past photos are welcome. We look forward to receiving your photos packed with the beauty of Japan!
COOL JAPAN VIDEOS management team
Help support local communities with the photos you submit!
We eagerly await your submissions!
