Kadena, Okinawans 'band together' in giant rope-making

A group of volunteers from Kadena Air Base and Okinawa City band together hand-made rope Nov. 21 to form an even more enormous rope for the Okinawa City International Carnival’s giant tug-of-war on Okinawa City’s “Koza Gate Street,” just outside Kadena’s Gate 2 scheduled Nov. 27. The rope is made of two halves – a male and female – each weighing nearly two tons and when combined, span longer than a football field. (U.S. Air Force photo/ Airman 1st Class Maeson L. Elleman)
