In addition, the “Tug of War Championship” is an annual popular event in which approximately 30 to 40 teams have serious competition, with ordinary people living in Nishi Ward, Yokohama City, workers and students participating.

The “Yokohama Royal Park Hotel” team has won three consecutive championships since the 2016 tournament.
The team members are elite members of the physical strength who are scouted from each department. By the way, it seems that it is the rule of the tournament that one female player enters.

Wear the orange tie of the team uniform and keep the heart in one! I will meet the tournament! !

We ask Masahito Tashiro of "Yokohama Park Hotel Room Management Division" enthusiasm of this year ...

"I prepare for the tournament and I am working hard every day to improve my members' strength and endurance from around the end of the year. The tug of war is good for young, resilient players.Unite with. This! I will go to victory this year! "And.

"I'm level up every year," says Mr. Tashiro, is a focus on the fighting Tug of Tugs Championship!
It will be 4 consecutive champions! ?
Please take a look at the venue on the day!
