Hakone Ekiden [Japanese Event]

http://www.yomiuri.co.jp/sports/ekiden/2010/news/20100103-OYT1T00646.htm

"駅伝"("Ekiden") is a long-distance relay road race which was born in Japan about 90 years ago.
One of the most popular "Ekiden" in Japan is "箱根駅伝"("Hakone-Ekiden").
It's a round-trip race between Otemachi in Tokyo and Hakone in Kanagawa and held on January 2 and 3. This two-day race from Otemachi in Tokyo to Hakone in Kanagawa and back is separated into five sections on each day. About 20 universities take part in it every year, this year Toho University wins the victory as well as last year.

In "Ekiden", a runner hand over his "たすき"("Tasuki") which means the sash to the next runner. It's very important that the sash of the team should be carried from the starting point to goal. I think "Ekiden" is suitable for Japanese who think higly of the teamwork.

I went to Mitsukoshi department store in Nihonbashi near Otemachi to get "福袋"("Fukubukuro") today and there were a lot of pepole beside the street to cheer for the runners of "Hakone-Ekiden".
