Journey to the End of the Night is a Tokyo-wide race on October 22nd, this time with a Space exploration theme.
Contestants must dash around the city 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 (+creative challenges). The course, which begins at Mabashi Park, will be approximately 8.5 km and may take 2 to 4 hours to complete (accounting for interference). Oh and it’s free!
Registration to play is required and can be done anytime until the day of the game at toky0.org
Check-in will be from 6:30-7pm and the game will begin at 7:15pm. Do your best to be on time.
