If you’ve ever wanted to experience hanami, otherwise known as the Japanese tradition of welcoming spring’s sakura flowers, then you’re in luck. Jinya Ramen Bar just launched its Ticket to Tokyo Instagram contest in celebration of Japan’s cherry blossoms, and the grand-prize winner will receive two round-trip tickets to Tokyo, Japan, during the 2017 Sakura season. The trip also includes four nights of accommodations and two dining experiences at Jinya founder Tomonori Takahashi’s Tokyo restaurants, Robata Jinya and Setonai Suigun.

To enter the contest, patrons must follow @JinyaRamenBar on Instagram, then dine-in and post a photo of their favorite dish with the hashtag #JINYATokyo and @JinyaRamenBar in the caption any time before April 1. The ten best snapshots will be re-grammed by Jinya, and the grand prize winner will be chosen by Takahashi himself. Ten finalists will also receive a $100 gift card to Jinya. Contest winners will be announced on April 28.

Sound like the perfect excuse to eat ramen every day this month? That’s because it is.

Jinya 4830 W. Flamingo Road, 702-868-8877. Daily, 11:30 a.m.-3 a.m.
