I took a short vacation and take a trip to Mishima-city located almost two hours from Tokyo.
My main object was to take Yabusame photos. Yabusame is a traditional horse back archery martial arts. The day was hot but I was managed to find a good location to hide from hard sun light. In addition I got a good photo effect that the sunbeams streaming through leaves.

Camera: EOS-1DsMkII, EF70-200/2.8L IS, EF24-105/4L IS

Mishima is a beautiful town that clear water run through the mid of town.

Where there is good water, there is good food

On the left is 10 piece Sushi lunch. On the right is charcoal broiled eel with teriyaki like sauce.
They were so delicious!

Thanks - very nice photographs.
Fascinating subject: I do a bit of recurve bowshooting myself and think it quite amazing that anyone can even come close to hitting a target on horseback.
