  7. Jogging Around the Imperial Palace in Otemachi

Jogging Around the Imperial Palace in Otemachi

September 2016 | Servcorp

Autumn is coming soon, and it is the most comfortable season for jogging.
So how about giving your office a few laps?

We recommend “morning jogging”!

In fact, morning jogging is quite effective for increasing the efficiency of your work.

Jogging has the effect to promote blood flow throughout the body and activate the prefrontal cortex of the brain, whose role is adjusting the activities of the brain. Therefore, joggers are in tip-top mental shape to tackle various tasks throughout the day!

The Otemachi area is the best place for jogging around the Imperial Palace.

Jogging around the Imperial Palace was pushed into the spotlight a few years ago, and currently there are lots of joggers' stations in Otemachi area, which provide people with a comfortable environment before and after jogging.

The Imperial Palace is a popular jogging spot. Its ground has a moderate height change and no traffic light. Also it is easy to measure distance in that jogging 1 lap is 5km. It is said that jogging the outer rim of the Imperial Palace counterclockwise is the most common way. Also Otemon is likely to become a starting point as it is an easily-noticeable landmark.

The more, the merrier. So try taking a colleague or friend out jogging with you before work!

If you become more careful about diet since you have started Imperial Palace jogging, we would like to introduce DHS Power Café. The café has a variety of high-protein items and it opened in May of this year. You can supply your muscles after jogging with healthy dishes. They also sell unique beverages, tellingly called “Meal replacement shakes”. The idea is that by replacing one meal with this shake, you can lose weight.
