Photo of the Day: Yabusame Archery

A Yabusame archery event was held in Asakusa near the Sumida River. I wasn’t able to capture a rider actually hitting the target (didn’t know the right panning technique yet), but caught an arrow in flight towards the square wooden target.

  1. That is just… a *very* cool shot.
    And it has a horse in it. (^^)b
    Looks like a really interesting event! I can’t imagine they have much space for this in Asakusa though? o.O
    Thanks for joining Show Me Japan this week too!
