Yabusame Votive Tablet is available now

This seasonal votive tablet has a picture of Yabusame, horseback archery, which will take place on 16th September and 4th October.

Yabusame is a Shinto ritual in which horseback riders shoot arrows at wooden targets set up in the shrine precincts. It has been dedicated in Tsurugaoka Hachimangu for more than 800 years. Write your wish on the Yabusame votive tablet. The galloping horse would bring your wish to the deities to make it come true.

Available from 5th September
