The Great Naha Tug-O-War (那覇の大綱引き)
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 ?
