The Asakusa Yabusame horseback archery event at Sumida Park in Tokyo. Yabusame (流鏑馬) is the samurai art of shooting arrows from horseback at a target. The archer shoots three special "turnip-headed" arrows successively at three wooden targets.

Gujo Hachiman Castle in Gifu Prefecture, Japan.
 
Gujo Hachiman Castle is a mountain castle located on top of Mount Hachiman in Gujo Hachiman, Gifu Prefecture. The original castle was built in 1559 by Endo Morikazu, but torn down during the Meiji Restoration in 1870. The current castle was reconstructed in 1933 and last year celebrated its 80th anniversary.

Colorful carp streamers (koinobori), flutter above a river in Ichinoseki, Iwate Prefecture, on Saturday morning, complemented by cherry blossoms in full bloom on the banks. The carp is a symbol of strength and the streamers can be seen nationwide ahead of Children’s Day next month.

One of my favourite views in Tokyo is from the Azumabashi Bridge, which is near the famous Sensoji temple in Asakusa. You can see the Tokyo Skytree as well as the Asahi Beer Hall with the Asahi Flame, officially nicknamed the Golden Poo (金のうんこ).
