‘Silk Road Walk’ is a game application that utilizes a pedometer.
A character in the game proceeds down the Silk Road according to the distance which you walked in reality.
The setting of the game is the Silk Road in 10th century.
In the heyday of the Silk Road, various merchants from lands such as the Byzantine Empire, Abbasid Caliphate, ‘Sogd’ desert, small Arabian countries, China in the Tang era, etc. took trips on the Silk Road.
Please become one of merchants in this era, take trips to make multiple deals and increase your assets and finish the trip of the Silk Road!

There are 5 stages from the ‘challenge course’ to walk the same distance as the real Silk Road to a 1/40 scaled ‘simple course’.
Please choose the difficulty level according to your walking pace.
