Japanese locals and tourists joined the three-day Naha Tug-of-War Festival in Japan's southern prefecture of Okinawa last weekend. The annual event drew crowds of over 200,000 who were excited to watch the main event – the tug of war. The game comprises two teams pulling a 200-meter-long rope made of straw weighing at least 43 tons. The tradition traces back to the 17th century, when people would play the game to wish for harmony and prosperity.
