Kendo In Kyoto

Golden Week in Japan bring with it a huge budo festival in Kyoto.

I was lucky enough to spend the day in Kyoto on Thursday and saw Yabusame (Japanese mounted archery) for the first time and saw some 7th dan Kendo matches at the Butokuden in the Heian Shrine area.

Also on the day was an 8th dan Iaido grading and a Kyudo competition.
