Thousands of people on southern Ishigaki island tucked into the 107.6m monster, the world's longest, in an event to promote the premium Ishigaki beef, local tourism agency official Shuntaro Kosasa said. Organisers had originally planned to make a beef kebab only 25m long, believing the world record was just 8.74m and set in Texas. 'Just three days before the event, we were informed that people in Lebanon actually set a new record of 97.5m in August,' Mr Kosasa said.
