Japanese Tag

Type: Active

Group Size: 5-30 people

Equipment: none


  1. Set up boundaries for tag game and pick someone to be It.
  2. When a player is tagged by the person who is It they must hold that spot while they become It and try to tag other players.


  • If you are playing with people with disabilities or in a place where it is unsafe to run then have them walk instead of run.


This game was a lot better when I implemented 2 people as being the taggers instead of just one. It made everyone stay active for the most part and added a new element because you could be being chased by one person, and then another tagger can sneak up on you without warning and tag you.
