It’s the stuff of daydreams: a holiday to a resplendent overseas destination – flights and accommodation paid for – with your own personal guide to show you everything from breathtaking wilderness and ancient sites to hidden bars in a neon cities.

In partnership with Japan National Tourism Organization (JNTO) and Wendy Wu Tours, Broadsheet is offering one person and a travel companion the chance to win a six-day trip to Sapporo and Kyoto in Japan valued at $10,000.

With bags packed and phrase book handy, the winner will board a flight from their nearest capital city bound for the country’s northern-most island Hokkaido to the mountain city of Sapporo. Here, you’ll spend three nights getting better acquainted with this picturesque, snow-swathed setting where deep bowls of steaming ramen await.

From Sapporo you’ll fly to the Kansai city of Osaka before arriving to your next city stay in Kyoto. Spend three nights in Kyoto, where tradition and history are carefully preserved. Explore the former capital best known for its ancient, glittering temples, historic shrines, celebrated ceramics and natural beauty.

Over six days and two cities you’ll have private access to the wisdom of a knowledgeable, local, English-speaking guide from Wendy Wu Tours. Your prize for two also includes return flights, transport throughout Japan, six breakfasts and all relevant entrance fees.

The tour will need to be booked before March 20, 2019, and take place before November 30, 2019. Blackout dates apply. Enter your details below for a chance to win.
