Yabusame in Kamakura

We went to Kamakura to see their Yabusame, or horseback archery, today. I believe I posted about Yabusame once before. Today was beautiful! That means, lots and lots of people! We were 45 minutes early, but we were still way back.
That competitor had just passed the last target. We were near the end of the line.
This was the parade of targets before the competition.
More of the parade before hand.
This guy was posing for pictures... so I took some. He seemed to enjoy the attention.

Very cool! Did you like this one better than the one at the beach?

Yabusame at Zushi Beach was much better because it was more open and more people could view it at once. If you only go to one, I would recommend Zushi Beach... wasn't that in the fall?

I didn't know they were doing this. I thought it was only in the fall. Looks like fun!
