Every annual event Hakone Ekiken is one of my favorite one. Yesterday New Year Ekiken was also the first one, there can be seen lots of familiar star athletes from Hakone. Hattori Toyota and Shitara Honda were Toyo university, Kamino Konikaminorta was Aoyama, Murayama brothers Asahikasei were Komazawa and Josai and so on. I’m very moved with their high potential relay the sash. My New Year days start from Hakone and thank them for giving me much motivation for the new year.
