Learn the basics of the Japanese horseback archery

 

Yabusame is an ancient Japanese martial art in which archers riding a horse compete for marks by shooting arrows at targets. Archers release an arrow atop a horse galloping at full speed. It is a fast-paced, exciting, and dignified event involving solemn rites and manners. The harness and the archer's costume are also crafted in a stately, ancient style. Those interested can join in on a three-day intensive program designed primarily for people who have horseback riding experience. The program teaches the basic theory of yabusame, horseback riding, archery and Japanese-style harness according to the level of each participant.

 

When to go: April through November
