Young Japanese women and Instagram

Advertisement

The sweets maker Kanro recently released a survey that looked at Instagram and lifestyle, with young women being the focus.

One reason for this survey is to promote a photo competition. Follow either Kanro’s Twitter or Instagram account, take a photo of yourself with a package of Kanro’s Pure Gummi and upload it, tagging it with #ピュレフォト and #キャンペーン実施中 by the end of the year. After that, 1,000 people will be selected (at random, I presume) and will receive 6 bags of limited edition colourful Pure Gummy.

My Instagram account is mostly stuff I find interesting and the occasional food plate, and I’ll like just about anything with kittens in it.

Here’s a selection of fruity gummy:
