A conventional rice cake raised challenge has been held at Daigoji Temple in Kyoto, Japan.
The occasion was hung on 23 February every year at the sanctuary, assigned as a World Heritage site.
This year, 69 people contended in the midst of the cheers of the crowd to see who could longest raise a monster “Kagamimochi” cake. The cakes were raised for men weighing 150 kilograms, while for ladies gauging 90 kilograms.
A 31-year-old fire fighter named Yasuhiro Horio from the city of Kyoto won the men’s division. He had the option to lift the cake for 5 minutes and 11 seconds.
A 46-year-bygone era named Mayumi Hayashi won an opposition for the ladies’ division, with a 11-minute and 31-second record.
