On the Day

This information will guide you through the event and prepare you for what to expect when you arrive at Tokyo Tower. Please come by public transport since parking is not available at the Tower. The closest station (Kamiyacho Station, Hibiya line) is 5 minutes from the tower.

When You Arrive

Please head for the tower’s main entrance. You will be met by event ushers who will guide you to the elevators that take you to the Foot Town Rooftop. This is the event staging area where you will check in at the registration desk. There will also be a bag drop area*, a chill out zone, refreshments on sale and some music.
* Please note that TELL is not response for any valuables left in the bag drop area.


At registration, please provide your name. You will receive your race bib and timing chip*. You will also be asked to sign a waiver. Participants must register individually. It is not possible to register on behalf of someone else.
We are expecting queues at registration since the event is at full capacity. So please be patient, enjoy the view, and take in the atmosphere. Remember we are here to raise awareness for the important cause of suicide prevention. Thank you for your understanding.
*Your timing chip is very valuable. If you lose it, your race time will not be recorded.

On finishing the climb, please make sure to take some photos and remember to tag #TELLTowerClimb on social media! There is limited capacity at the finish area. Please descend to Foot Town Roof as soon as possible to pick up your certificate.
