    Japanese Traditional Mounted Archery Yabusame

    Japanese Traditional Mounted Archery Yabusame The three of us (adults) did this activity and were so happy we did! We also paid the extra yen for the costume and we all felt it was definitely worth it. The property the horses are on is beautiful, and the track is set up at the same place the annual Yabusame competition is held, so you know you’re getting the proper and authentic experience. Our tour guides spoke great English and took awesome pictures of us on all phases of the training. The training was very clear and concise. The owner of the property trained us along with his guides and it was a sight seeing him perform archery. We went from not knowing what we were doing at all to performing archery on a gorgeous horse (Clydesdale, I think?)
    We own a ranch back in the states, so we want to now set up a Yabusame track. Don’t miss out on this experience, it’s worth every cent / penny / yen ;)

    Horseback Riding in Sapporo with Taxi Pick-Up Service

    Horseback Riding in Sapporo with Taxi Pick-Up Service For Horse Riding in Wild's Mustang Horse Farm in Hokkaido is the fantastic experience. We went there in late October, the koyo leave is a bit fall but I am sure if we went there in the early October, leave color will be likes paradise.

    Anyway, there is one big point that I concern is about the no-reply mail from your website that always indicate that my service is included Taxi service that's wrong. I have to contact your staff to clear this point and I receive the explanation that the system is confuse or something.

    After clear that point with your staff, I am still receive the reminder mail with the same information about Taxi service. So, I wondered don't you fix anything in your system ?

    I am confuse with the information I received. If you can fix your system up to date, it would be better.

    Japanese Traditional Mounted Archery Yabusame

    Japanese Traditional Mounted Archery Yabusame I had a great day learning Yabusame. I did the three hour class as I thought it would be good to consolidate my skills and I do not regret it at all. The Kawakami family were very friendly and made me feel part of their family and Tomo speaks great English, and as others have said here, could replace the interpreter. However I was glad the interpreter came with me to take the stress off navigating the train system (which with a bit of prep time I could have managed). This was my first time and I was glad with the trainers' support to make some progress. It was very relaxed compared to the hustle and bustle of Tokyo. There was only me there and I was a bit wary of being in the middle of nowhere on an active farm but that soon changed. I was asked if I wanted to rent the traditional costume but didn't have enough cash on me (hadn't yet worked out Tokyo's ATM system) but kind of thought it would have been great for the photos. They were very patient with me as I learned how to shoot the arrow and then put the action onto a horse. I had great fun and was buzzing for many days. I have traveled a lot through Japan and many times and I must say that learning Yabusame with this family is one of my highlights. I will definitely book to do this again next time I am in Japan.

    Japanese Traditional Mounted Archery Yabusame

    Japanese Traditional Mounted Archery Yabusame We did the 2 hour lesson and it was an incredible experience! The staff there were really friendly and even though neither of us had any experience riding we felt comfortable enough to shoot the bow while the horse was running and had a great time! The only downside was that the interpreter was a bit unnecessary on our trip as one of the guys at the place speaks good English and he was the one who explained everything to us, our interpreter basically just held the camera for us so it felt like a needless expense. On another day when he wasn't working though I'm sure the interpreter would be helpful.
