aogaku

For the second consecutive year, Aoyama Gakuin University won the Hakone Ekiden race on Jan 2-3. This two-day long-distance running relay race from Otemachi, Tokyo to Hakone and back is the most popular nationwide televised sporting event during the New Year's holidays.

We stopped by Aoyama Gakuin University (just a minute away) today to get a shot of their new victory banner. Congratulations to our next-door neighbor university!
