Meiji Jingū Shrine Yabusame


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 Jingū Shrine. The archery takes place at the West approach — it’ll be busy so arrive early to get a good spot.

Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
