Tokyo is a bucket list destination if ever there was one. And there's a long list of good reasons for this. It's a veritable mecca for fashion, culture, technology, food, architecture, and so much more. A fascinating city that looks and feels like nowhere else.
From square watermelons to see-through toilets (sort of), cherry blossom parks to Michelin three-star restaurants – and pretty much everything in-between – the world's largest metropolis is packed full of exciting opportunities to explore and soak up new sensations.
There are literally thousands of things you could add to your to-do list (and we can help with this), but to find the best running routes you need a local. And we've got the perfect person to help you out.

Airi Osugi is literally paid to explore. She makes her living traveling the world, visiting different countries for a TV show. She's always been an adventurer and loves nothing more than getting out there and seeing what places have to offer. Including her home base, Tokyo.
"Tokyo is a city of chaos, in a good way, mixing the modern and historic. Each area has its own unique features. It's an always-changing city, but I hope the places rooted in history stay the same forever," she says.
"I first started running for work, but as I continued, it became a hobby of mine that I began to enjoy outside of work too. Today I take part in running events and competitions. I like it so much that, recently, I started working as a running instructor.
"Running is like a supplement of my life – it helps me feel refreshed physically and mentally."
