Description

Namiki Yabusame Limited Edition

Yabusame - literally means the traditional Japanese art of horseback archery, wherein an archer, riding at full gallop, attempts to pierce three sequential targets with kaburaya or whistling arrows. The sport existed as a form of horseback combat archery since the Heian period (AD 794 – 1185), and was further popularised during the Kamakura period (AD1185 – 1332), through art performance and the study of Samurai code. From the peaceful Edo period (AD1603 – 1868) to present-day, Yabusame evolved to become a ceremonial ritual at shrines to pray for peaceful times and a prosperous harvest. Apart from its practical use in combat, Yabusame also has a more formal etiquette of honour attached to it which has developed over the centuries.
