Join 30,000 runners on Tokyo's fantastic marathon course, tried and tested by our very own Harry Sargant!
With 36,000 runners, 10,000 volunteers and almost 2 million people lining the streets, the Tokyo marathon is a huge spectacle. The race, which first ran in 2007, starts from the Shinjuku government building and takes in the historic Asakusa district, the bay side Rainbow Bridge, Tokyo Tower and Meiji Shrine. InsideJapan's very own Harry Sargant successfully completed the race in 2008.
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.
