Archery anyone?

Traditional Archery display in Nikko, Japan

Just a quick, fun post for today...

When I was in the traditional city of Nikko in Japan last year, I managed to witness an interesting archery event. The participants dressed up as mediaval folks...processing down a prepared gravel road, approximately 800m long

Three targets were set up at regular intervals, and archers on horseback, ride at full speed, and try and shoot 3 arrows at the the 3 targets. Amazingly many are able to hit 2, with some even striking all 3 targets while on horseback.
