If you’re looking for a jog that lets you enjoy the Tokyo skyline, we suggest the Rainbow Bridge, stretching across Tokyo Bay to Shibaura Pier. The bridge walkway is only 1.7km end to end, but if you want more out of your run, you can conquer an additional 13-kilometre course in just under two hours.
Once you’ve crossed the Rainbow Bridge from Odaiba, turn right and head north along the Yurikamome line and past the Hamarikyu Gardens. If you have some time, take a detour through the gardens for ¥300 – get a sip of matcha from the teahouse before continuing your run. Cross the Tsukiji-o Bridge and keep going straight for about three kilometres. You’ll see several Tokyo Olympic venues on the way. When you hit Ariake station, take a right to circle back to Odaiba, where you’ll see the Giant Sky Wheel in Palette Town.
Daiba, Odaiba-kaihinkoen, Tokyo Teleport and Aomi stations all have lockers. For the ultimate warm-down, go to Oedo Onsen Monogatari to soak in natural hot spring baths or relax in a rock salt sauna or foot bath.
Post-run: Fuel up with bagels or an acai banana smoothie at Crux Kafeo (7.30am-7pm, Sat 12noon-6pm, closed Sun & hols). The Open Bakery offers baguette and ciabatta sandwiches along with its premium Daiba roasted coffee.
