“Failure” at the Olympics gave birth to the “Father of the Japanese Marathon!” 

One of only two athletes Japan could afford to send to the 1912 Stockholm Olympics, Shiso Kanakuri collapsed and disappeared mid-race. 

With his failure and regret as a spring, Kanakuri spent his life developing Japanese sports culture and inspiring generations of Japanese people throughout years of social change and disaster. Now is the time to convey to children the transformative power of failures and challenging memories.

Includes a shoots and ladders-type game in the appendix.
