Living TRAVEL - JAPAN 1986

Nikko

18 May Festival
and Procession of hundreds of local people dressed in historical costumes
and carrying banners and caskets of the enshrined spirits of past famous people

 
The day before the procession - the archery on horseback contests

 


Getting ready for the signal to ride at full speed past the targets - and below
 


Off !
 

Firing an arrow at full gallop
 

How's that !
