🏇Yabusame is a Japanese horseback archery ritual that dates back to the 11th century.
If you’ve never seen this 1,000 year tradition, why not come and see the breathtaking ritual that takes place at the Izumoiwai Yabusame Festival.💥
Watch as the three boys around the age of 15 carry out all sorts of amazing (and difficult) performances on horses 🏇.
