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.
