A marathon race in memory of the 2011 Tohoku tsunami.
The latest race on Japan's marathon scene is the Kyoto Marathon which was held for the first time on 11th March 2012 to mark the one year anniversary of the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami. The marathon aims to raise funds to support those affected by the disaster.
The race course is mainly flat and takes in seven World Heritage sights as well as a long stretch along the Kamo River. The race takes place in February each year. Please note that InsideJapan Tours cannot arrange entry to the marathon, but can point you in the direction of the online lottery application system. We can of course book accommodation and make arrangements around your participation in the race.
