A famous sporting event since 1987, only the hardiest of athletes dare compete in this exhilarating race across a vast stretch of the Japan Current.
The triathletes are required to swim, cycle and run all in the same race. Covering vast stretches of blue ocean to flawless white beaches, this is an attractive race for participants and spectators alike.
The proud sense of achievement on completing this gruelling race is something all the triathletes look forward to, and to witness the competitive struggle for success is certainly an exciting spectacle, to say the least.
Date: beginning of September every year.
