I went to “Nike presents: Shinjuku Gyoen AFTER DARK” (2018.10.13)

I went to “Nike presents: Shinjuku Gyoen AFTER DARK”.
As many participants wrote online, operation was somewhat confused, but I think that the idea of enjoying running and music in the park at night is wonderful.
All organizers should improve only the aspect of management by all means, but I would like all Nike teams to try again next year, I definitely want to go.
I appreciate this wonderful idea.

One night’s special experience offered by Nike. “Shinjuku Gyoen AFTER DARK” is held on October 13.

Shinjuku Gyoen is a huge forest park located in the center of the city center. In the space which can also be called the oasis in the city center, usually entering at night is forbidden, but it seems that a running event sponsored by Nike of the shoe maker is held only overnight.
This event will be held on Saturday 13th October and is an admission free event named “Nike presents: Shinjuku Gyoen AFTER DARK”.

However, it seems to be very popular and already when I tried to reserve it was “waiting for cancellation”.
If cancellation comes out, it seems to be announced at 17:00 on that day.
Everyone, if you are interested, we recommend you to make advance booking.
