Win a Trip to Tokyo on All Nippon Airways

Sweepstakes celebrates Japan being open to travel once again


Washington, D.C. [December 14, 2022] – All Nippon Airways (ANA), Japan’s largest 5-star airline, and the National Cherry Blossom Festival, one of the world’s greatest celebrations of spring, are partnering to launch an airfare sweepstakes, inviting the public to enter for a chance to win a pair of round-trip tickets to Tokyo on ANA. For every 100 entries to the sweepstakes, ANA will plant one new cherry blossom tree in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area for future generations to enjoy.

The sweepstakes is open now through February 13, 2023 to all eligible U.S. residents ages 18 and older outside the state of Tennessee. One lucky winner will be chosen at random to receive a pair of economy class round-trip tickets to Tokyo from a U.S. ANA gateway airport. Entrants can also receive bonus entries to the sweepstakes by sharing a unique URL with their friends and by entering their ANA Mileage Club (AMC) account number. (Those who are not AMC members can register here to obtain an account number.) For sweepstakes details and restrictions, go to https://bit.ly/WinTwoTicketsonANA. 

Additionally, for every 100 entries the sweepstakes receives, ANA will continue their tradition of planting cherry blossom trees in the D.C. community*. ANA has planted 113 trees with the National Cherry Blossom Festival throughout the region, including at Georgetown University, Langley High School, Walt Whitman High School, Thomas Jefferson High School, and more. (*The maximum number of trees ANA will plant is 30.)

ANA is a longtime supporter of the National Cherry Blossom Festival and will be a Host Sponsor in 2023. ANA also returns as the Presenting Sponsor for the Festival’s ANA Stage at the Tidal Basin, as well as a Supporting Sponsor of the National Cherry Blossom Festival Parade® presented by Events DC.

ANA was founded in 1952 and is the largest airline in Japan, now directly flying to 10 North American destinations, including Washington, D.C. Servicing Dulles International Airport for over 30 years, ANA is eager to celebrate the opening of Japan to international travel with this sweepstakes.

“Washington D.C. was one of ANA’s first U.S. gateways. It was pivotal in helping us strive for an interconnected world and bridging an understanding between people and cultures. We are proud to support the National Cherry Blossom Festival and create these inclusive community events that bring memories that last a lifetime and celebrate the relationship between Japan and the U.S.,” said Junko Yazawa, Senior Vice President of ANA.

The 2023 Festival honors the historic gift of 3,000 cherry trees from Tokyo to Washington, D.C. What started as a simple ceremony in 1927 has grown into one of the world’s great celebrations of spring, creating joyful moments and memories throughout four weeks of food, fun, culture, and entertainment among the beautiful cherry blossom trees. This year’s festivities will take place March 20 through April 16. For more information, visit NationalCherryBlossomFestival.org.
