Journey to the End of the NightMARE – Halloween Edition

6:00pm – 11:30pm
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. Two years, three Journeys and four-hundred players later, it’s back again! The next chase through the streets of Tokyo will be a Halloween Nightmare-themed Journey, on October 21st.

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, with creative challenges along the way. Once caught, runners become chasers. The course, which begins on the western side of Toyama Park (west of Nishiwaseda Station, at the Children’s Square—not the eastern side!), will run approximately 9.8km and may take 2 to 4 hours to complete (accounting for interference). Oh, and joining is free! (But you must pre-register!)

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