Since the launch of the Tokyo Marathon in 2007 where over 30,000 people race in the heart of the city, running has gained major popularity. Among many running routes, the peripheral road of the Tokyo Imperial Palace has always been a popular course. The Tokyo Imperial Palace, main residence of the Emperor of Japan, is an ideal 5km course with no traffic lights. RUNNERS STATION is conveniently located in Koujimachi, and we provide rental services, a locker space, a clean shower room, and also a relaxation area. Runners Station provides a place for runners to share the love of the run with one another.
