Hundreds of People Turn Up for Tokyo Great Santa Run

TOKYO – Hundreds of people turned up on Sunday dressed as Santa Claus to participate in the charity race known as the Tokyo Great Santa Run 2018, the first such event held in the Japanese capital.

Garbed in red robes and donning Santa’s iconic stocking cap, people of all ages gathered at the Meiji jingu Gaien park in Tokyo’s Shinjuku neighborhood capital for the run, whose proceeds were set to be donated for the benefit of sick children in Japanese hospitals and disadvantaged children in Kenya.

The race, which saw enthusiastic participation of several children and even some pets, began at noon and was followed by a so-called “human Christmas-tree making workshop,” as the city geared up for Christmas.

Great Santa Runs are held in different cities across the world for charity purposes.
