Your chance to see archery on horseback is coming soon! On Sunday, September 30, neighboring Kamogawa City will host the annual Yabusame Festival, where an archer riding on horseback shoots at three targets. Where the arrows land determine the next year’s harvest.
The event will start around 3 p.m.
If you can’t make it, no worries. The event is held on the last Sunday of September each year.
