A Detective’s Journey to the End of the Night

6:00pm – 11:00pm
Free

In October 2015, 25 organizers came together with 120 players for the first Journey to the End of the Night, dashing around the city, evading their pursuers and completing challenges. Now 2.5 years, 5 Journeys and five hundred players later, we’re excited to play with you again! Our next chase through the streets of Tokyo will be on June 16th, and will be the story of a detective in film noir style.

Contestants must dash around the city either on foot or by train and complete challenges at five checkpoints while evading pursuit. It is similar to the Japanese game onigokko 鬼ごっこ, or a zombie version of a game of tag, with creative challenges along the way. Once caught, runners become chasers. The course location will be secret until the day of the game, and we will reveal the start location in the coming weeks. It will run approximately 9.7km and may take 2 to 4 hours to complete (accounting for interference). Oh, and joining us is free! (But you must pre-register!)

Check-in will be from 6:00pm – 6:30pm at Edogawa park, and the game will begin at 6:45. Don’t be late!
Online pre-registration at toky0.org is required to play and is open now.
