Awaiting confirmation...

Sorry to have kept you waiting, we are glad to announce that 9th edition of 'Win a Trip to Japan' has now started!

It has been a while since the last time, in fact it has been almost a year since we held the last 'Win a Trip to Japan' event here at Tozando.
We got a lot of response from our you asking if there would be no more 'Win a Trip to Japan' here at Tozando, but the wait is now over and we are back again!

However, to be able to enhance the experience even further for the winner, we have decided to change the event a bit this time. For example we want to make sure that the winners will be able to have a proper Budo experience, so we are planning to arrange a proper Keiko session with the Tozando team members at the Kyoto Butokuden, Budo center! 

For this 'Win a Trip to Japan' we have limited the participants to customers who have bought Kendo product only, as we will adapt this trip for Kendo practitioners. But please don't worry, we will be holding similar events for Iaido and Aikido practitioners in due time also! We have decided to renew the event in this way so that the chance of winning for respective customers will be higher than before, so that we can get more variety in our guests here in Kyoto!

As always, the winner will win a trip to Kyoto, which includes the whole package of: plane ticket, accommodation and transportation!

Who is eligible?

- Any customer who has placed an order for any eligible products on Tozando Online Shopping, Nishijin Sword, during the period defined below will automatically take part to the lottery. This time, we are limiting the eligible products to Kendo Products only.
- Even if you have not placed an order for any of the eligible products, as long as your total order amount exceeds 35,000yen, your order is eligible (except cancelled ones).
- One order gives you one chance to be selected per week; two orders give you two chances, etc.
