Great 5k loop. Ran it on a weekend and also on a weekday. Definitely go early morning to minimize the pedestrian traffic. On the weekend the roads nearby are closed and reserved for cyclists so that was fun to see literally 100s of cyclists of...More

My wife and I are runners and decided, on a beautiful spring day, to take a run around the Imperial Palace. While the run is essentially flat, the trail is not interrupted with traffic lights or traffic. The only traffic is other runners, the occasional...More

This is a beautiful location to run. It is green and lush. It feels extremely safe, as it is located adjacent to the Imperial Palace. The grounds are very well kept, also ... so you don't need to worry about divers or other stumbling hazards....More

It felt so good to jog along the palace because you get to see lots of historical and famous places such as congress, hotels and park. Loved it!

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular
