Asakusa Yabusame

11:00am
Free

This is a chance to watch yabusame, the impressive Japanese martial art of horse-mounted archery (it’s quite difficult to hit a target from a moving horse) in Asakusa. Although the event starts at 11.45 am, it’s recommended that you get there earlier!

Note: There is a free viewing area, however there is limited capacity (hence the reason to get there early). Advanced tickets can be purchased for ¥3,000 by filling out an online form (Japanese) or calling 03-5246-1447.
