Participants compete for the speed of cutting a log with one pair using the local special product “Wakinomachi saw” with the handle on both sides of the blade.

In the elementary school, children were pushing and sawing hard to cut down a log with a diameter of about 20 cm.

In the general section that cuts a log with a diameter of about 30 cm, participants saw a powerful saw in response to the call from the venue.

A 26-year-old man who participated with his mother from Niigata City said, “I participate every year in order to deepen my parents' bond. The first half was good, but my stamina was cut off from the middle. "
