His Excellency Mr. Giorgio Starace, the Italian Ambassador, served Yabusame ritual as the Grand Marshal on 6th October.

Sukeisha-taisai and Yabusame were held on 6th October. This festival is conducted by Worshippers’ Association Enju-no-Kai to pray for developing the vigorous, hopeful, and cheerful society and promoting international openness.  Tsurugaoka Hachimangu invited His Excellency Mr. Giorgio Starace, the Italian Ambassador to Japan, to play the role of “Grand Marshal” of the horseback archery.

As a part of intercultural activities of Enju no Kai, many foreign diplomats and oversea students were also invited to Yabusame. This year, 6 children from the embassy of Canada, Colombia, Russia and the US also participated as assistants in the horseback archery with Japanese children. They enjoyed this classical event and deepened their understanding of Japanese culture and tradition.
