Journey to the End of the Night

7:15pm
Free

Journey to the End of the Night is back! This time with a ‘Heroes and Villains’ theme. Last October, 120 of you ran through Tokyo evading pursuit and completing challenges. We’re excited to play with you again!

Journey to the End of the Night is a Tokyo-wide race on May 21st with a Heroes and Villains theme. Contestants must dash around the city and complete challenges at six 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. The course, which begins at Kiyosumi Koen, will be approximately 9 km and may take 2 to 4 hours to complete (accounting for interference). Oh and it’s free!

Check-in will be from 6:30-7pm and the game will begin at 7:15. Do your best to be on time. Online pre-registration to play is required and will be available from May 10th. Donations encouraged, to pay for organization/supply costs. Any extra donations above costs will go to earthquake relief efforts in Kumamoto.

Fame and fortune await those who succeed in the allotted time. Can you survive until the end of the night?
