The Tokyo Tower Climb
October 1 - October 2

After a two-year COVID hiatus, our Tokyo Tower Climb Challenge is back, and this time, across one whole weekend! Across the weekend, you will take on the challenge of running, walking, or crawling up the 600 steps to the top of the Tokyo Tower.

This two-day event will see corporate teams race for victory on Saturday, October 1st, and athletes, individuals, families, community groups, and schools come together to take on the challenge on Sunday, October 2nd.

The last time this event was held, in 2019, it was sold out - with tower climbers raising a mammoth five million yen in total. Come climb this iconic structure, and show your support for mental health. Your participation helps support TELL’s efforts so that people don’t have to struggle alone!

In addition to challenging yourself physically, you can participate in our cup events! We will hold a school cup, a community cup, and a corporate cup. Got a friendly rivalry with another firm or school? Want to see which department is the fastest or most persuasive? We have a way for you to resolve these questions!


Saturday, October 1st - Corporate Team Day

Sunday, October 2nd - Community Day

(schools / families / individuals / community groups / teams)


You’ll be assigned a race time between 7:00 - 10:00 AM


There are incentives for being the winner of either the fundraising or the awareness categories, where your efforts will be announced on October 10. There will still be a great trophy for winning either competition and on the awareness side, we will have two judges decide which team leveraged their creative talents best to effectively reach the most people!
