About 3000 young men pull a huge rope which is 365m long and 5t weight. The gangs of people who block the pulling of the rope and the people pulling the rope fight. It is so vigorous that this event is called “Kenka zuna (Fight tug)”.
Warning: This can get really rough at the front of the rope.
Route 3 around the site will be temporarily closed to traffic for this event.
