Journey to the End of the Night

7:00pm
Free

How about spending a Saturday night running through the streets of Toyko as part of a city-wide, real-life street race?

There are three different participants in the game: 1. salarymen/women (runners) 2. managers (chasers) and 3. chairpersons (checkpoint attendants). The salarymen will strive to reach several checkpoints throughout the city to have their proposals “approved” by a waiting chairperson—all while evading the managers who want to take credit for the proposal. If you’re caught by one of the chasers, you in turn become one and your new goal is to catch the most runners.

Sounds fun, doesn’t it? If you want to participate, register here. It’s free to participate, but they do ask for a small donation (even 100 yen helps) when you arrive to help cover the costs of the ribbons, prizes, props and refreshments at the end.

It starts at Shiba Park at 7:00 pm. For more info on what to expect and what to bring with you, visit here.
