Just a 15 minute walk from Koma Station and along the main road sits the majestic Koma Old Town House, a beautifully restored historic residence of the Arai family, one of the richest families and formal leaders of Koma. The house was built at the end of the Edo Period. It is now a museum open to the public and admission is free.

For Sherilyn Siy, Asia is home. Born in Hong Kong, Sherilyn spent time in the Philippines, China, and now lives in Japan. She speaks English, Filipino, Chinese (or putonghua), and Hokkien, her family's local dialect. Running is one of her favorite ways to explore Japan. She proudly finished the 2015 Tokyo Marathon -- her first ever full marathon -- in 4 hours and 37 minutes. She was absolutely psyched when she got selected again to run the new Tokyo Marathon route in 2018. She hopes to complete other races in Japan.
