Tokyo Yamathon

tokyo yamathon

The Yamathon is a fundraising challenge where teams of three or four people compete to walk or run through Tokyo, visiting all 29 stations of the famous JR Yamanote train line in under 12 hours. Teams can also choose to do a half-Yamathon, finishing at Mejiro Station.

  • This is a fundraising event, with 100% of your registration fee (10,000 yen/team) going to Plan Japan.
  • Our start/finish venue is only 3 minutes walk from Tokyo Station.
  • The Yamathon is a unique endeavour in that there is no set course. Basic directions are provided to all participants—part of the navigational challenge is to be creative and take shortcuts provided you visit all 29 Yamanote Stations.
  • Teams must take a photo at every station to prove that they have completed the Yamathon circle.

The Tokyo Yamathon Board Members are a part of the IVG (International Volunteer Group), a group of volunteers who work together to support charities throughout Japan.

IVG is an entirely volunteer-founded group of people from across the globe with a desire to make a real difference!
