October 6-8, 2012 Come join the world's biggest Tug of War!!!
The 40th Naha Festival (The 40th Naha Great Tug of War)
The main attraction of the festival, Naha Great Tug of War is open to everyone! The busy Kumoji intersection of Route 58 will be completely cleared, with the road divider removed specially for this event. Make way for this gigantic rope because it's a Guinness World Record holder, measuring 200m (656 feet) in length, and weighing more than 40 metric tons (44 Amer. tons, 39 long tons)!
This event definately needs more than 15,000 people in order to pull the rope, and that means we need you too!
After the tug of war is over, don't forget to take home the pieces of the rope that is believed to bring good luck for the rest of the year.
