Yabusame Experience

Origin of Samurai. Invitation to Yabusame


In Japan, there are many beautiful traditional cultures, but among them, Yabusame (Japanese horseback archery) is especially thrilling and enjoyable. Why not experience this Japanese martial art yourself and enjoy a traditional activity?
There is the Yabusame festival held annually on September 19th for the past 850 years at the Omuro Sengen Shrine. This tour offers the opportunity to experience a simulation of the traditional Yabusame Festival. You can participate in the experience wearing traditional Japanese attire. Before the experience starts, you need to go through the purification ceremony inside the shrine. Then, an instructor teaches you how to use traditional Japanese archery on horseback. After the Yabusame, you will take a short journey to Honcho Street while riding on horseback.

Guest Reviews

“Must joining the night tour if you stay around Mt. Fuji! We last-minute booked it when we couldn't find evening plans, and we're amazed we almost missed it.”
