Annual Yabusame (horseback archery) Festival


The sight of the horses running is the highlight of this festival: A rare horseback archery festival that will tell your fortune

An autumnal festival held in Omuro Sengen Shrine in Shimoyoshida. The festival features "Yabusame", a horse-back archery by the players clad in traditional clothes for hunting, with a special event of fortune-telling by the trace of horseshoe after the shooting. This event is not so flamboyant as general yabusame, but the horse-back archery with fortune-telling is very special shrine ritual and worth seeing.
