When Sunday, February 24th Where Sakurajiima, Kagoshima Prefecture Distance Half marathon, 10K, 5K Price ¥3500 Benefits T-shirt, onsen ticket (most likely to Furusato), and a towel
Although the cherry blossoms will not be blooming and holding this pennisula to its name, this is still an excellent race. The course starts out on one of my favorite places to run in Japan - the lava trail on the southwest side of Sakurajima volcano. With the smoke plume still blowing towards Miyazaki, you won't even have to worry about ash showers. Race, and enjoy some of the best views and onsen in the country.
