Get ready to explore Japan in Austin! Austin Japan Community is hosting an exciting scavenger hunt where you will get to visit Japanese restaurants and businesses throughout the city! Use our handy map (to be shared at a later date) to choose from different restaurants, shops, stores, and more, and share your adventure on social media. Some of these locations are also offering a discount or small prize if you present your map at check-out.
The best part is that you can gather points for the chance to win a prize at the end of the event! The more places you visit, the more points you gain — and the more points you earn, the bigger the prize!
To earn points, participants must follow “Austin Japan Community” on Facebook and/or Instagram (1 point for each platform) and visit at least two locations from each of the two categories (restaurants and shops). You get 1 point for each visit if you:
- Share a picture on Instagram of yourself at the location
- Tag AJC and the business
- Use our hashtag #ExploreJapanInAustin
You can get an extra point for following the business on Facebook and/or Instagram too!
It’s that easy! At the end of the event, we’ll have several winners who will receive a gift card to one of these businesses. Or, you could become the grand prize winner by following and visiting the most Japanese businesses in Austin!
Good Luck! 頑張って！
