Women Warrior 3 by maxre Women Warrior 3 by maxre
"Warrior women" Series - The northern part of Japan is the place where the majority of archers are women. This event is a women's only event. They ride and shoot at fixed targets. Towada has the most women archers in Japan. This City also has the most women archers in the country. Very traditional sport.

Honestly, I can't speak much to it. Everything I've learned, I've learned from being here. I didn't know anything about them until I moved here.

Japan keeps a lot of things internal to it's country. Events like this are usually attended by locals and tourists from Japan. Not many outsiders other than people that live in Japan. I'm going to one more in October. Should be awesome!

Thanks. I'm pretty excited about it. This weekend, the Nebuta festival is happening also. So I'll be coming back with photos of that.
