Want to know more about the prize?

On the northern tip of Honshu in Aomori Prefecture, there’s a glassmaking tradition known as Tsugaru Vidro. Using the ancient free-blowing technique, glass objects are crafted in a mind-boggling range of colours that reflect the changing seasons.Tsugaru-Vidro

This month, we’re giving away 2 Tsugaru Vidro sake glasses supplied by Hoshino Resorts KAI Tsugaru. Speckled with a multitude of colours, these unique glasses have been designed as a tribute to the vivid celebrations of the local summer-time festival, Nebuta Matsuri.


As a bonus, our lucky winner will also receive 2 indigo-dyed coasters and an indigo towel crafted in Kurobane, Tochigi Prefecture.



Known for its deep, long-lasting colour, Kurobane indigo is a prized local tradition – and forms a striking part of the decor in several rooms at Hoshino Resorts KAI Kinugawa.




The contest is now over. Thank you to everyone who entered!

We are pleased to announce that the winner of the contest is Kenny Poelt (from USA). Congratulations!
