After choosing the tags, send us your picture as a private message, with a title and the correct tag corresponding to your picture. Your real name and family name have to appear in the description. These information have to correspond with the information on your passport.

We accept pictures from 10/09 to 11/05. Our team will upload pictures every morning at 9 a.m. (Japanese timeline).

We will post your picture in an album. Afterwards, share it and try to get as many likes and shares as possible on your picture to access to the final step. The best five will be selected.
Notice that our team will also pick 5 pictures they like.

From 11/05 will not accept any more pictures, and the 10 best pictures will have access to the next step. During one week, our team and the Connect-House community will hold an event with tenants and professional photographers to vote and decide which is the best picture. The results will be shown on 11/15.
