    This service by HIS provided an excellent way in which to enter one of Japan's most popular Marathons.The entry provided in English was simple and people were on hand, either before the race by email or on site on the day, to answer my questions. The race itself was great with cheering spectators everywhere, a massive contingent of runners of all ages and aims, and excellent aid stations!
