Running Season

joggingmap en Running Season

This is the marathon season. The most popular race is the Tokyo Marathon on February 28th. However, there are road races every week during this time. Another well-known race is the 44th Ome Marathon, a 30km race that will be held just a week before on February 21st. I will run in this race, which will be my third.

The course above near Tokyo Tower and Prince Hotels is a very nice one in the heart of central Tokyo. The lengths of a couple of courses are marked. I want to thank Prince Hotel for the map.

One of the most popular running routes is the Imperial Palace.

FAQ: Quick ways to find maps

Thursday, November 11th, 2010

The fastest and easiest way to find a map of a location is to type in the name in the search box. For example, type “Napule” and you will get a link to Pizzeria Trattoria Napule.

If you don’t know the name or are searching for a certain type of location, you can enter keywords in a fashion similar to how you do with search engines. For example, you can type “italian omotesando” and you will get a list of locations related to italy in Omotesando, such as Italian restaurants. Of course you can do the same from your mobile phone. Bookmark http://gmap.jp/ on your mobile phone for future searches.

apple logo3 Major Update to Go!TOKYO!

It has taken us over 8 months, but we have revamped and rebuilt our Go!TOKYO app! Among other things, we have added 16 train lines, maps of major stations, station search, first and last train timetables,  and much more! We now cover over 500 stations and we are far from finished! And of course, the app has been optimized for the iPad!

Besides the added content, we believe one of the most important changes has been to treat each station separately. Below are some images of our updated app.

Tues., May 5th – Cinco de Mayo Live & Poker and Games Night
Research reveals that the first observance of Cinco de Mayo in America was in fact in the state of California to celebrate the Mexican resistance to French rule.

The festivities include indulgence in traditional Mexican food, music, and dance. Since The Pink Cow is sort of California in the middle of Tokyo we thought we would do a couple of events to commemorate it:) This is the first one featuring yummy Mexican food specials & Live Latin Jazz.

From 7pm, No Entry Charge! Just come hungry!

Topic: “Social Media Myths” — Putting the Social back into Social Meda

Think social media has completely changed the marketing game? Well, think again. The old rules of marketing still apply – There are no shortcuts. The myth of viral marketing is stronger than ever and a lot of misunderstanding in the marketing world thanks to social media.
