Sanfrecce

Sanfrecce

Sanfrecce is one of the Japanese professional football league teams, which has its home stadium in Hiroshima-city. “San” means three, and “frecce” means arrows in Italian word. Mori Motonari, who was the prominent daimyo of Hiroshima region in 16th century, said to his three sons “you should get together and stand against together to any enemies. One arrow is easily broken into two, but three gathered arrows are not so broken.” This historical fact is the origin of the name of Sanfrecce. You can watch their game at the Big Arch stadium, which it takes about 40 mins from the center by Astram Line, the monorail.
