Tokyo Marathon travel and entry information



February 28, 2016 


We are pleased to be appointed the exclusive tour operator in the US and Canada for the Tokyo Marathon 2016. The event has become the most popular running event in Japan if not the world with about 320,000 runners vying for a bib number in the lottery. We offer a guaranteed entry when you book one of our packages.


Tokyo was selected as the 6th World Marathon Major in October  2012. The demand for this event from international runners will surely increase.


Running has always been a revered sport in Japan. Naoko Takahashi was the first woman to break the 2:20 barrier when she ran 2:19:46 in the 2001 Berlin Marathon. The country was known mostly for the Fukuoka Marathon and Osaka Ladies Marathon which were created for elite athletes only. Tokyo Marathon has embaced all runners in an attempt to become one of the world's most popular international events.


Please review our package features.  We can also customize a complete itnerary for optional extensions.
