KINKA FAMILY Celebrates Tokyo Restaurant Opening with Social Media Contest

Japan opening is an exciting first step to expanding local brands internationally

TORONTO, Sept. 15, 2016 /CNW/ - As part of their future international expansion plans, Toronto-based KINKA FAMILY launches its latest venture KINKA Modern Japanese in Tokyo, Japan, their first-ever restaurant outside of Canada. Combining the casual, Japanese tapas-style of KINKA IZAKAYA and fresh, high quality sushi and sashimi of JaBistro into a brand new concept, KINKA Modern Japanese is located in the heart of Tokyo's hottest culinary destination, Shibuya. The Japanese restaurant group will be celebrating the grand opening with a social media competition.

"It's been quite an incredible year for us, and we owe it all to our guests," says James Hyunsoo Kim, CEO of KINKA FAMILY. "In order to give them an opportunity to join us in the celebration, we planned an incredible social media contest. It's our way of saying 'thank you'!"

The #KINKAjapan social media contest begins on September 15, 2016. To enter, fans and followers in Canada must post a photo/video taken at any one of KINKA FAMILY's four restaurants – KINTON RAMEN, KINKA IZAKAYA, JaBistro or KINTORI YAKITORI – on Instagram, Twitter and/or Facebook. Entrants must "follow" or "like" the restaurant's account and include 1) a brief description of the Photo/Video contents, 2) a reason why he/she wants to visit Japan, 3) the hashtag #KINKAjapan, and 4) the restaurant's social media account. One lucky winner will receive: Air Canada roundtrip airfare for two from Toronto/Montreal to Tokyo, two nights at a 4+ star hotel in Tokyo, and dinner for two at KINKA Modern Japanese. The contest ends on October 31, 2016.
