Tokyo-Hakone Daigaku Ekiden Final

Tokyo-Hakone Daigaku Ekiden Final

This year’s Hakone Long-distance Relay Race ended with Nippon Sport Science University’s glorious victory for the first time in 30 years.

The result of the game is crucial since it is a relay race after all; however, there is another important reason to enjoy the Hakone Long-distance Relay Race, which is the spectacular scenery surrounding the course.

The Hakone Long-distance Relay Race’ starting point is from Otemachi, Tokyo and stretches 108 kilometers, all the way to Ashinoko, Hakone.

Hakone is initially the tourist attraction that represents Japan, but within its course are the Shonan Coast, Odawara Castle, and an abundance of other attractions worth seeing.

Even if you’re only watching the race from your TV, the beautiful scenery captured on the screen itself is enough reason to enjoy watching the race.

Being able to experience the taste of that sightseeing feeling from your living room… aah, now that must be the secret why Hakone Long-distance Relay Race is so popular.
