Wakayama - With less than 100 days to go until this summer's Olympic Games, the famed Tokyo Olympic torch relay is now underway and one of the knitting sector's most renowned companies is playing its part.

With the ceremonial relay held in Wakayama prefecture for two days, Mitsuhiro Shima, the president of computerized knitting machine specialist Shima Seiki, was invited to run part of the course, a request which recognised the high regard for the company across the region.

On the first day, the torch, which arrived from Mie Prefecture traveled north on the Kii Peninsula from Shingu City to Wakayama City, and on the second day, it ran through the Kinokawa River from Shingu City to Hashimoto City.
