Suicide rate in Tokyo is linked to cultural factors. In a society where failure is not
permitted, the cause of suicide is often fear of failing. Suicide Run is a celebration
of failure. It’s a run without competition. No one is going to win, lose or reach the
finish line because Suicide Run doesn’t provide none of these things. By
subscribing on our website, runners share their failure stories. We printed them on
the t-shirts they wear during Suicide Run. For the first time, Tokyo is running not to
stand out but to break the silence.
