Meiji Jingu Shrine Yabusame

Photo by Ryosuke Yagi used under CC

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). This is part of the annual Autumn festival which features a host of events from the 1st – 3rd of November each year at Meiji Jingu Shrine. The archery takes place at the West approach – it’ll be busy so arrive early to get a good spot.
