The Women's Ekiden Club was established in April 2019
out of founder Hirotake Yano's passionate desire to give back to the local community and contribute to society.

The team is coached by Shinya Iwamoto, who led Sera High School
to a total of six championships for both the boys and girls teams.

We will continue to train middle/long-distance athletes based in Higashihiroshima City, Hiroshima Prefecture, to expand the population of track and field athletes, and will also
engage in social contribution activities through sports.

Our future goals include winning the All-Japan Women's Corporate Ekiden Championships and to compete in international tournaments.

Daiso Women's Ekiden Team uniform

Based on the corporate color pink, the design is inspired by the corporate logo, the Three Arrows.

The large printed logo expresses a sense of dynamism and the concept of breaking through stereotypes.

To create a three-dimensional look, the scale motif—a modernized version of an auspicious pattern—is also used to decorate the logo and back.
