The 2nd Samurai Challenge

October 2020

page rally plate

A second chance to experience the amazing landscapes and culture of Japan

From ancient past to high-tech future


Our fabulous Samurai Challenge in Spring 2017 was such a wonderful success that we have decided to return to Japan in 2020 for a second bite of the cherry, if not the cherry blossom; this time we will be travelling in October and following a circular route that starts and finishes in the dazzling city of Tokyo.

In addition to stunning scenery, ancient temples, amazing food and mind-boggling culture, we will also be revisiting the delightful Sado Island, home of the internationally renowned Kodo Drummers and the venue for some of 2017’s most memorable regularity sections. With a host of new experiences besides, we can promise you an event you will never forget.

We’ll be publishing a detailed brochure in due course, but you will find a taste of what to expect in our original Samurai Challenge rally blog, accessed from our 2017 event page. As on that occasion, the second Samurai Challenge will be accompanied by expert medical and mechanical support teams as well as knowledgeable local agents, who proved in 2017 that nothing was beyond their remarkable abilities. In the meantime the Rally Round office stands ready to advise and assist you in your preparations, or simply to answer any questions you might have. We look forward to hearing from you!
