- CONTEST IS OVER - 5th FEB 2012 -

Please Take Note:
  • I noticed a few people uploading just any pictures. Please take note that the picture should have something that resembles the letter "X". See Examples of Uploaded X Pictures.  
  • Stock photos from Google or any other photo site are prohibited and will be disqualified. The pictures must be your own.
  • Altered pictures (using photoshop or any other editing tool) to enhance the X are not allowed. You can sharpen and contrast the picture but putting in an "X" is disallowed. 
  • You are allowed a maximum of Five (5) pictures to be uploaded. 
  • Any pictures that do not meet the above will be removed.  
Final Check:
  • For step #4, you have to "RENAME" your uploaded "X" image to your EMAIL ID - Example: johnsmithATgmailDOTcom.jpg. 
  • Do NOT rename, as it will NOT register.
  • Images without the correct email id will be disqualified as we do not know who the image belongs to. 
  • Once you submit your "X" picture, you will see it there in the widget. You are done!
  • No nudity, racial, religious, derogatory or discriminating pictures. 
*Some tips:  You can go through some of your old photos to see if there are any that resemble an "X."

Visiting Tokyo and Osaka, Japan

Many people dream of visiting one of the most fascinating and interesting cities in the world, and now you are given a chance to do so with AirAsia X.

Tokyo and Osaka are rated as Japan's first and second largest cities with a fast thriving metropolis lifestyle. The culture alone is amazing, where modern technology blends with historical sites and traditions.

For those who have yet to visit Tokyo and Osaka, some graphic pictures show you some of the attractions found in these two major Japanese cities.

Tokyo is known for the incredibly fast-moving Japanese lifestyle, while everything related to Japan can be found here.

Experience seeing cutting-edge electronics and technology, eat traditional Ramen noodles, visit Tokyo Disneyland, check out cosplay and anime, sample Sushi and buy stuff from vending machines that sell just about everything.

On the other hand, Osaka is another place many people like to visit as the city is home to Universal Studios Japan, the Osaka Aquarium, Osaka Castle, Famous Takoyaki (Grilled Octopus balls) stalls, and several well-known shopping areas like Shinsaibashi Shopping District in Osaka.
