The Shinto Ritual of Yabusame at Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine in Kamakura (Autumn)

Yabusame is a type of traditional Japanese archery in which a rider on a running horse shoots arrows at a target. At Kamakura's Tsurugaoka Hachimangu shrine, Yabusame events are held in the spring during the Kamakura Matsuri and in the autumn at the Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Reitaisai festivals. As an event where the 800-year-history of samurai can be felt, it attracts a lot of people.

Japan’s rainy season may be coming up, but there’s still plenty to look forward to! While June is generally wet and muggy, it’s also when varying colours of hydrangea begin to bloom beautifully all over Kanto. If you’re looking to see the flowers in all their glory, we suggest heading to the history-rich city of Kamakura, which was once the capital of Japan.
