We are holding a photo contest aimed at non-Japanese people connected to Nagasaki Prefecture! The theme is
‘Yokane’ is a Nagasaki dialect word meaning ‘that’s great!’ (or ‘iine’ in regular Japanese).
When you tell your family or friends about Nagasaki, what kinds of places or things would you show them, to make them say ‘yokane!’? We’d love to receive photographs which show the best of your Nagasaki. We look forward to all your applications!
