Living TRAVEL - JAPAN 1986


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 !
