Nihonsei: Tokyo Marathon 2011
A run for a cause went mainstream last year as top companies like ABS-CBN and Milo invited every athlete and non-athlete to join the fun run so that a chosen charity could benefit from it . Well, Japan too had been hosting a lot of marathon in the past few years and by far Tokyo Marathon is the most famous. Find out why after the jump.
The recently concluded Tokyo Marathon Charity Run 2011 last February 27 attracted a lot of foreigners and otakus alike. That's right, that's not a typo. A large number of otakus joined the recent marathon wearing their favorite anime character. A "cosplay marathon" as they call it.
The proceeds of the charity run were given to selected institutions around Japan. And they say otakus are worthless human beings.
