Day 61: Yabusame Sami!

So, "yabusame" is the Japanese art of shooting arrows from the back of a galloping horse. It's transcendental to watch, with all the frippery and finery and pomp that you might expect from Edo-era Japan. Lady yabusame practitioners are not rare, but I'm pretty sure they're encouraged to wear their hair up. Probably. I don't know. I just wanted to draw HAAAAAIIIIIIRRRRRR
