Also known as Takadanobaba 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) in Toyama Park. A procession will take place from the Anahachimangu shrine in Waseda leading to the nearby park where the Yabusame will take place. Please note, the event will be cancelled if there is rain.
