Yabusame in Koyama

well, actually.. Kimotsuki town, since it merged with uchinoura..

anyhoo... went to the Yabusame matsuri where a boy in Junior High 2nd year will ride a horse and shoot on target in the traditional Japanese bow and arrows. If the boy misses the target, then the town will have bad luck in the next year... such a big responsibility on a boy! of course he gets 3 tries, but..what if??!!

I tried to take some nice pics but then it all went by so fast... and I think I concentrate on taking photos and actually didn't see the shooting and riding horse part directly. oh well :p

here's a collage with the photos I took.
