Fight Against Maturity

Japanese dig it

Over a thousand people gathered on the outskirts of Tokyo, shovels in hand, to dig it out for the top prize in the Japan All-National Hole Digging Competition and claim the coveted Golden Shovel award.

The contest drew participants from all over the country to test their hole-digging prowess and claim awards not only for the deepest hole, but also for most creative hole and the most original costume worn during the digging. Just over 200 teams took part in the Sunday event, with an additional 30 teams made up of either women only or groups of elementary school-age children, or younger, competing in special categories.
