This is what marathons look like in Tokyo I guess (29 Photos)

At this year’s annual Tokyo Marathon over 36,000 people were in attendance.
And apparently, though it’s not a requirement, people often decide to dress up in Costume. Only in Japan, man.

    • Anton Goloub

      Cheburashka is really popular in Japan, when I was there i bought up a bunch of cheburashka memorabilia, including a chebuashka dog toy with rope ears. I think some Japanese company bought the rights from Russia

  • naturboy

    Let this be a lesson to anyone who wants to fuck with the U.S. ever again, we will nuke you and you will act like dumbasses throughout the rest of your history as a result of the drain bamage.

    • Feeder of Trolls

      Own any Sony products? Or maybe a Toyota or a Honda? Or have you ever played a Nintendo system? Like Sushi?

      Or maybe I should put it this way, ever been to a Halloween party?

    • WhiteTrolls

      I'm pretty sure Japan is fucking us right now. I'm an obese american. I'd never be caught dead at a marathon.

    • Don_Aguelo

      I thought The Chive had a hillbilly firewall…

    • Philo

      I'm a firm believer that this is the result of the fallout from us bombing them

    • Jenny

      Have you ever been to Hiroshima and Nagasaki? Would you like to see shadows imprinted on cement steps? Did you know people were completely incinerated? That there were people who drank ash in their water right after? I have been to the museum in Hiroshima and I know you would not dare say such a thing if you had seen what I have seen. Please be more respectful in your comments. Thank you.

      • Kung Poo
