The 11th annual Ota universal Ekiden

The 11th annual Ota universal Ekiden (road relay) / 第11回おおたユニバーサル駅伝大会
Ekiden is a relay race where team players wear a team sash and hand it to the next player.

We make one team of 10 people:

  • 5 runners (a child, an adult, a senior, a person with special needs and an international guest)
  • 5 students

Each participant walks, runs or uses a mobility device for 1 km.

After the competition, please enjoy lunch and stay for the attractions with all of the teams:

TISA JEx and Ten million fireflies

Sankei-en, a beautiful traditional Japanese-style garden (in Yokohama), as every year, is holding a fireflies event. At this time of the year the park is open for much longer and the darkness of late evening gives us the opportunity to adore the dance of the fireflies. The event is held every evening from May 25th to June 3rd.

TISA JEx committee is inviting everyone to join a small trip outside the campus and enjoy the magical dancing lights together. We are suggesting deciding the most convenient date and go there together.
