The UTMF will be taking place just before one of Japan’s biggest holidays – the Golden Week holidays. If you haven’t done so already, please be sure to make accommodation and transportation arrangements in advance as things will be completely booked during this busy time period.

Accommodation and racer support packages for overseas runners are available through our official partner, AVID ADVENTURES JAPAN. Racers, family and supporters are welcome and includes accommodations, transportation to Kodomono-kuni starting area, racer support during the race at aid stations, and a private shuttle bus that runs between aid stations during the race. English-speaking staff (as well as other languages) will be on hand to provide assistance throughout the race. Avid can also provide advice and assistance in English when making your travel arrangements to Japan.


If you’ve booked your own accommodations, don’t forget to make a shuttle bus reservation departing from Ohike Kouen, Kawaguchiko to the Kodomono-kuni starting area.
The 8:30am departure buses are fully booked but there are some seats left for the 5:30am bus. See here for details.
