Journey to the End of the Night is Back!

In October 2015, 25 organizers came together with 120 players for the first Journey to the End of the Night, dashing around the city, evading their pursuers and completing challenges. Two years, three Journeys and four hundred players later, we’re excited to be with you again! Our next chase through the streets of Tokyo will be a Halloween Nightmare-themed Journey, on October 21st.

Contestants must dash around the city and complete challenges at five checkpoints while evading pursuit. It is similar to the Japanese game onigokko (鬼ごっこ), or a zombie version of a game of tag, with creative challenges along the way. Once caught, runners become chasers. The course, which begins on the western side of Toyama Park (west of Nishiwaseda station, at the Children’s Square – not the eastern side!), will run approximately 9.8km and may take 2 to 4 hours to complete (accounting for interference). Oh, and joining us is free! (But you must pre-register!)

How to Play

THE NIGHTMARE – You’re not sure where you are…

You were drowsy a minute ago, and now there’s a gap in your memories between where you were and where you happen to be.

Eerie, omnipresent sensations seem to come from all around. You’ve just escaped a monster – but there’s a lot more of them, their slavering eyes and corrupt hearts dripping with hunger – you feel like a fish in a supermarket tank, only alive for freshness.

How is that possible? Are you dreaming? Are you trapped in TV Land? In the back of your mind, it feels as though the answers come from thataways – If you can dodge the nightmares that surround you.

Can you find the answers? Can you survive until the end of the night?
