In an effort to diversify tourism outside the capital during the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, Japan Airlines is giving away trips to lesser-visited cities — but the winners won’t get to choose their destination.

The airline's website explains that when contestants send in their application form, they will see a list of four possible destinations where they could be sent. Hopeful travelers can search more than once to see different combinations of cities.
