Centering on Tokyo’s Marunouchi, a participatory event will kick off that will showcase a huge variety of sport under the themes of “PARTICIPATING, SEEING, READING, EATING”! The scope of MARUNOUCHI SPORTS FES 2017, an event now in its second year, will dramatically expand as Yurakucho and Otemachi are added to last year’s venues in the Marunouchi District. For the two weeks from August 3rd to the 17th, Marunouchi Nakadori, the Maru Building, and Otemachi Nakadori, etc., will all be touched by the colors of sport.

At this festival which aims to raise the health consciousness of Marunouchi, Yurakucho and Otematchi-based employees and visitors, and to also promote exchanges among them, there will be many events held for the purpose of making sport more accessible. Using as its theme the sort of mental focus that is imperative in both business and on the sporting field, there will be the MARUNOUCHI PENTATHALON, where those who are game can take up the challenge of setting records in baseball, soccer and tennis, etc. There will also be SPORTS EXPERIENCES & DEMONSTRATIONS, where you can try your hand at popular pastimes such as street rugby and slacklining. Meanwhile, at OTEMACHI GOLF, professional players will be on hand to offer tips, and visitors will be able to work up a healthy sweat, right there in the middle of one of Tokyo’s most well-known business districts.

Guest athletes from various sports such as the soccer analyst Tsuyoshi Kitazawa and the figureskater Takahiko Kozuka will also be on hand participating in talkshows, while there will be the SPORTS LIBRARY panel display where visitors can enjoy reading newspaper articles and documents related to sport, along with the sayings of notable competitors. The SPORTS MUSEUM with its memorabilia of sporting goods actually used by top athletes also shouldn’t be missed.

Meanwhile, more than 90 eatries located in and around the Maru Building and Shin-Maru Building, etc., will combine to hold MARUNOUCHI POWERFOOD. With the themes of “CHARGE”, “BURN” and “COOLDOWN”, these restaurants will be providing nutritious menu items to ensure that visitors remain strong and don’t lose out to the summer heat.

This summer, please come along and fully enjoy the pleasures of a variety of different sports at the MARUNOUCHISPORTS FES 2017!
