Accepted rules for runners jogging around the Imperial Court in Tokyo
The Tokyo District Administration has adopted rules to prevent problems due to the increasing number of runners jogging around the Imperial Court.
In recent years, the sidewalks around the Imperial Court in Chiyoda attract more and more people doing jogging for health. Sometimes their number goes up to 10,000 people a day.
Such an accumulation of runners causes numerous complaints from pedestrians who say they just do not face the runners. This prompted the local government district to form a committee composed of experts, the runners and the police to discuss security issues.
On Thursday, the committee adopted the 9 rules. They include running anti-clockwise, as well as jogging in a row, if the pavement is shrinking.
