-Run alongside a course surrounded by early blooming spring rape blossoms
-Time limit: 8 hours
-This is Japan's earliest official citizen's marathon

This is the earliest official citizen's marathon for the year in Japan, held in January and each category sells out. The time limit is 8 hours.

The course is up and down with an elevation change of up to 100m. The race takes its name from the expansive fields of yellow rape blossoms surrounding Lake Ikeda (Kyushu's largest lake). You'll see Mount Kaimon (known as the Fuji of Satsuma), Japan's largest flower park Flower Park Kagoshima, and various other local attractions. Generous local supporters provide runners with pork and vegetable soup, freshly harvested cherry tomatoes and other local dishes. Aid stations will be set up at the 7.5km mark and every 2.5km thereafter (total of 14 stations) where water, bananas, rock sugar and sweet potatoes will be provided.

When you've reached the finish line, why not enjoy some of Japan's famous natural sand onsens (sand hot springs) to relieve your muscles and tired body.
