[1-Day Event: March 17] Join the Fukuyama Marathon

Are you up for joining a running event in Japan?

Events are being held in the Seto Inland Sea area on March 17: the Fukuyama Marathon.

Registration is open until January 14.

(You may want to use an extension to translate pages in Japanese.)

There will be numerous events: a half-marathon, 10 km, 3 km, 2.5 km and a walk.

I recommend going sightseeing at Fukuyama Castle (just in front of JR Fukuyama Station), running in the Fukuyama Marathon, and then staying overnight at Tomonoura.

Recommendations in and around Tomonoura:

Accommodations: Ofutei, OchiKochi, Hiuchiya and more.

Activity: Experience Forging in Tomonoura

Spot near Tomonoura: Explore new type of Zen experience
