Journey to the End of the Night is a Tokyo-wide race, this time on March 18th, with a time-travel 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 Rinshi no Mori Park, will be approximately 8.5 km and may take 2 to 4 hours to complete (accounting for interference). Oh and it’s free!
Check-in will be from 6:00pm-6:30pm and the game will begin at 6:45pm. Do your best to be on time. Online pre-registration is required to play and will be available from the end of February.
Honor and glory await those who succeed in the allotted time. Can you survive until the end of the night?
