Tokyo’s Santa Run sees a parade of Santas make their way around Yoyogi Park and beyond for a children’s charity. There will even be a special appearance from a suitably dressed Rilakuma.
Double up the fun and head to Fiesta de España happening at the same time.
This charity event will see the Santas set off from Yoyogi Park and make a loop around Meiji Dori and Jingumae Intersection before arriving back at Yoyogi Park. Registration starts at 10 a.m. and the walk/parade/run will start at midday.
