Hideki Mizuno

In Towada City, Aomori Prefecture, this is a Yabusame tournament held only by female jockeys around the time the cherry blossoms are in bloom. Female jockeys dressed in glossy kimono carry bows, ride on horses of Japan traditional lineage, and fly quickly through three targets while frying dust. Originally, Yabusame is an event held only by men as a Shinto ritual, but in the modern era of the 21st century, the gender difference between men and women has been abolished, and the ancient traditions of martial arts and equestrian arts that have Japan been handed down from ancient times have been adopted and passed on to the future, and the world fascinated by the glossy Japanese costume caress is worth visiting this land and seeing.
