The Tokyo Marathon is Tokyo's large scale city marathon held annually in February.

The race starts at the Metropolitan Government building in Shinjuku and ends at the Tokyo Big Sight in Odaiba. The attractively designed route passes several of Tokyo's main tourist spots, including the Imperial Palace, Tokyo Tower, Asakusa and Ginza:

Route of the Tokyo Marathon

The Tokyo Marathon features a marathon race with approximately 35,000 participants and a 10 kilometer race with approximately 500 participants of both genders, including wheelchair users, and visually and mentally impaired athletes.

The marathon race is accompanied by various festivities and events, including the Tokyo Marathon Expo in the Tokyo Big Sight complex.

The application deadline for each marathon is during the preceding summer. Because the number of applicants always exceeds the number of spaces available by a large margin, participants will be determined by lottery, with results announced around mid October.
