Try your Japanese archery in Kyoto
Japanese archery, known as kyudo, is an extremely popular martial art in Japan; most high schools have a kyudo club. The earliest images of archery in Japan date back to the Yayoi period (500 BC – AD 300), but the practice really took off in the 12th century when it was adopted by samurai as part of their training.
Only One Travel can organize a private kyudo class with a master archer during your stay in Kyoto. By copying the movements of the instructors, you will have to shoot arrows from a two meter long kyudo bow. An important part of kyudo is the ritual preparation of each shot to train both your mind and body.
