The Naha Great Tug-of-War (2)

The Naha Great Tug-of-War (2)

This major three-day event is held on the second weekend of October each year in the central part of Naha. The main event, the Naha Great Tug-of-War, uses a 200-meter long rope that is made of rice straw and weighs 43 tons, a Guinness World Record, which is then tugged by tens of thousands of people. The rope used for the Naha Great Tug-of-War is said to be a good-luck charm, and pieces of it are cut off and handed out for people to take home.
