Horse mounted archery in Asakusa

This is a chance to watch Yabusame, the impressive Japanese martial art of horse-mounted archery in Asakusa. The event starts at 11:00 am on Saturday, but it’s recommended that you get there earlier. The Yabusame in Asakusa has a very long history. During the Edo era, it was held every year on January 5th as a New Year's special event at Asakusa Shrine, while today it is held in Sumida Park during Spring time. 

Where: Asakusa, Sumida Park
