YABUSAME – Samurai Horseback Archery
Sunday 1 June at 13:00 & 18:00
Laakso hippodrome, Helsinki
The Yabusame ceremony is one of the oldest and finest Japanese samurai martial arts, and goes back to the Kamakura period (12th-13th centuries). Dressed in traditional samurai outfits, archers from the Ogasawara School shoot special arrows at three targets whilst riding galloping horses. This is the first time the ceremony is being performed in the Nordic countries.
