Need you own transportation to starting line and parking can be a burden
– Route :
Running at the foot of Mt Fuji was a pleasant motivation .
The run is very well organized, and the course around the lake is a tremendous flat scenery
Can be hot during the run and water stations are offering drink too sweet, carry your own so you won’t dehydrate as i did and won’t toward the end to look for runners or spectators who could provide plain water

T-shirt and Medal , food and drinks perfect as always when it comes to Japanese planning
