Encouragement Marathon Tour Around Japan

Tokyo metropolitan government

128 days from July 25th, 1999 to November 29th, the entire distance from the north-eastern to south-western Japan amounts to 3,728 miles. I will run through all 47 prefectures in Japan. The event is organized by “Japan Patient Council (JPC).” In each district, my team and I planned to talk with the patients and their families. Visit the governor in each prefecture and the welfare minister in Tokyo in order to discuss a petition for improvement measures for the incurable patients. Also, from each prefecture, I will receive words of encouragement written on a banner.
