If Japan is on the bucketlist for 2017, then here’s your chance to experience it for free with one of your closest friends.

The country’s leading luxury hospitality group, Hoshino Resorts, has made a grand entrance into the Australian market with a ‘meaty’ competition.

Before you get into the entry deets, here’s a little background on the group.

Hoshino Resorts runs a line of ryokans (Japanese inns), resorts and hotels. These properties focus on comfort and relaxation as well as offering a “Japanese experience”.

The group’s Chief Executive, Yoshiharu Hoshino, said he hopes to one day bring the unique ryokan concept to Australia, but first, he’s keen to welcome more Aussies to the existing 35 properties in Japan.

In order to do this he’s launched a brand building competition Down Under, giving Australians the chance to WIN a meaty trip to Japan.

The prize includes return tickets to Japan for two people, 10 nights at Hoshino Resorts and 10 different local dishes made up with the ‘best beef in Japan’.
