A horseback archery display between the trees, this is an impressive feat of skill on show in Kyoto once a year. Taking place annually on the third of May, this event takes place in the run up to Kyoto’s Aoi Matsuri. At 1pm, carefully trained archers from the Ogasawara School will race through the forest in full traditional costume.
