Community Cup

This is the first year we will officially hold a Community Cup. In 2018, we were very touched by the numerous groups of individuals who came together to form a team taking on the Tower challenge and raising important funds and awareness along the way. This year we will recognise the fastest team and highest fundraising teams with a trophy and certificate.

What is the Community Cup?


The Community Cup is a team race event allowing a group of individuals to join together and to challenge each other in both fundraising and fastest time. There are incentives for being the winner of either category where your efforts will be announced at the awards ceremony. Along with the on the day incentives and prizes, if you win, you’ll also get a trophy giving you and your team official bragging rights!

A team consists of 4 people and your team time will be calculated as the average of the 4 climbers. If you have more than one team the times will be calculated for each team separately.

Why enter the Community Cup?


Your experience will include:

  • Team photo

  • Community logo on display at event and on event website

  • A chance to race, and beat competitors or clients!

  • Trophies for the champions



The entry fee for this category is ¥12,000 per team of 4. Team’s are then required to raise a minimum of ¥40,000 per team to be eligible to participate in the challenge. Once you have registered on our website one of our team members will be in touch.

”The support of mental health is a cause I am passionate about. It touches me on a personal level and is something which Japan desperately needs a much better understanding of. Through high profile events such as the Tokyo Tower Climb, everyone
can be involved with helping this happen. I was proud and humbled by my supporters who helped me achieve the "top fundraiser" title and for me that was what it was all about.

I'm looking forward to trying to improve on last year's time, this year!"
