Okoshiyasu Welcome Square

Marathon Participants are encouraged to visit the Okoshiyasu Welcome Square 2017 at Miyakomesse (Kyoto International Exhibition Hall) as it is also being held in the same location as runner check-in.

The Okoshiyasu Welcome Square 2017 will be free for all to enter over the two-day check-in period, Fri. February 17 through Sat.

If you’re a runner, please feel free to bring along your friends and family members. You’ll be greeted with a big, warm Kyoto "Okoshiyasu!"

*On the day of the marathon (Sun. February 19), Okoshiyasu Welcome Square will be open to runners only.
