We are pleased to be appointed the exclusive tour operator in the U.S. and Canada for the Tokyo Marathon 2020. The event has become the most popular running event in Japan, if not the world, with about 320,000 runners vying for an entry through the lottery.  As an exclusive tour operator, we can offer a guaranteed entry when you book one of our packages.

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.  The Tokyo Marathon has embraced all runners in an attempt to become one of the world's most popular international events. In 2012, it was selected as the sixth Abbott World Marathon Majors!

2019 Marathon Tours Tokyo Trip

Was a little nervous traveling somewhere that English is not the primary language. MT had everything covered so it was not an issue. Fellow travelers, staff made this a wonderful experience. Extension to Kyoto gave me a better feel of Japan than being in the big city (Tokyo). Well worth the extra time and money. And who doesn’t like a trip with Jacqui on it??!!
