A Guinness World Record Event in Naha Okinawa

The Great Naha Tug-O-War (那覇の大綱引き)

Now is the time to start planning if you want to travel to see it.

Some people are the athletic-types and come to pull on the ropes.

Others, like to make videos or, get photos of the action.

Maybe, you'd just like to hangout with a quarter million other folks.

People come from around the globe for the excitement.

Just bump elbows with a few of them if you want to make some new friends.

The tug-o-war takes place Sunday October 13, 2013.

Why not hop on a plane and come on over ?
