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 archer's shot would bring your wish to the deities to make it come true.
