Ever wonder how people get chosen to compete on Sasuke, or how people even apply? And I bet anyone who’s seen the show wondered “Where on earth is Mt. Midoriyama?” Good news for the curious. The answers are no longer a secret.
Mt. Midoriyama isn’t really a mountain at all. Tokyo Broadcasting System (TBS) owns a studio called “Mt. Midoriyama.” which in the back, has ample space to set up the 4 intense stages of the Sasuke obstacle courses. Located in Yokohama Prefecture, it is surprisingly close to the heart of Japan, Tokyo. TBS only discloses the exact location to their contestants and their family members.
