Hi everyone who enjoys reading TKE blog.
It’s time for the Giveaway 2011. First of all, thank you for those who kindly suggested to me what kind of prizes might be good the other day.

Please read the following guidelines carefully before you enter the contest.

Close: Thursday 14th July 2011 at midnight (Japan Standard Time)
*The announcement of the winners will be around 16th-18th July or so.

How to enter: Fill out the contact form with your name, email address and subject as “TKE Giveaway 2011” and your answers to the following questions. (Your URL is optional, which doesn’t really matter.)

Questions for you to answer
1) Do you have any problems when you browse TKE blog? (for example, it takes too much time for loading.)
2) What kind of post/category/page do you like most in TKE blog and why is that? *Multiple answer is OK. (for example, Japanese foods and Pi-chan.)

5) Any suggestions to improve TKE blog?
6) Which do you prefer: Reading TKE blog or watching video blog on Youtube (assuming that I update more videos.)
(What do you honestly think of the idea that I less frequently update this blog and more active on Youtube instead?)
7) Which prize do you want if you win the contest?

What you can win?: See below.

Q. Who can participate in the contest?

Q. What is the prize?
A. There are 7 options you can choose from, if you win the contest. (See below the post for more about the prize.)

Q. Can I enter by leaving my comment on this post?
A. No. To enter the contest, you have to write to me. If the contact form didn’t work, please simply email kirin at (change at to @) with all the information required.

Q. Do I have to subscribe to TKE before I enter?
A. No, it doesn’t matter. Some people like to read through RSS, some like to Google “Tokyo Kawaii, etc.” Some bookmark it. It all depends what method you like to use to reach TKE blog. So I don’t want to insist that.

Q. How many winners?
A. 1) 2 winners for Best Contribution Prize. (USD 30+ worth)
(Each of them can choose 1 prize out of 7 options. I will make it flexible. For example, if one wants Japanese magazine prize, I can ask her which specific magazine she wants and I will get it for her.)

2) 1 winner for Thank You Prize. (USD 15 worth)
(Random pick up. No freedom and no flexibility of choosing the prize. However I will consider her No.7 answer and try to choose the goods from her preferences.)

Q. Who can win the Best Contribution Prize and Thank You Prize then?
A. 1) For Best Contribution Prize
It’s given to 2 participants who gave me the email that moved my heart/ gave me a big aha! moment/ most. Whether it’s positive or negative comment, if I find it a good opinion, the sender of the email will be the winner of this contest.

2) For Thank You Prize
It’s given to 1 participant selected by randam drawing.

    Thank you for your entries!
    I'm receiving entries everyday! I'll print all the entries out, read them carefully and use them for a random drawing for Thank You Prize. ^ ^

    Please take your time, if you have not entered yet, as it closes 14th July 2011. You still have a lot of time!

    FYI, let me tell you I cannot reply to each of your entry because I'll receive like over 50 emails (entries). I will read them very carefully to select the winners but sorry I cannot reply to each of the entry, which is just too much work. (>w<)

    So please don't worry if your entry is read or not. It's normal that you don't receive my replying email. ^ ^;;
