What you'll do

1. Participants will dress in traditional Kyudo uniforms which include Dogi(upperwear),Hakama(lower wear)

2. Brief explanation, instruction and demonstration of the art of Kyudo.

3.Participants will use the knowledge gained to shoot arrows at the target

By wearing the traditional Hakama and armor for archery, experience the fun and also the challenging aspect of Kyudo (Japanese archery).

Usually in Kyudo you are not allowed to pull the arrow unless you master the basic, however even if you are a complete beginner you will be able to enjoy a real kyudo experience.

This plan is great for people who are looking for a nice photo or movie to show off on to your SNS.

Kyudo is a martial art where you focus shooting an arrow from a Japanese bow to a target to reach a complete focus of mind and body. The main difference of Kyudo and a western archery is that in Kyudo every movement from going in the dojo to out and the shooting of the arrow follows a traditional routine, paying respect to their equipment and their opponents.

Where you'll be

3-minutes walk from “Atomic Bomb Dome”, the only place where you can enjoy the Japanese traditional archery experience in Hiroshima. We offer a mini-sized Kyudo ground with a distance to the target. It's bit difficult to hit the target at first time, but you will get big excitement when you hit it!! In addition, it is believed that hitting the arrow will bring good luck and your wish!
Japanese martial arts activity is Hiroshima

弓道の知識なく、好奇心だけで参加しましたが、大満足の体験でした!行く前は当てられるかドキドキしましたが、Kenjiさんの指導のもと、無知なわたしも何とかできました。少しでも興味があれば、参加をおすすめします!

弓道をしてみる体験は、なかなかないので楽しかったです。 初心者向けに丁寧に教えてくれます。終わった後で、毛利元就が息子に話したという、3本の矢の話を思い出しました。弓道が身近な途中なんでしょうね。

Hat riesen Spaß gemacht. Die Erklärungen waren einfach zu verstehen und präzise, sodass man direkt loslegen. Es gab ein paar geschichtliche Infos und ein paar sehenswerte Fotos.

Very enjoyable introduction to Kyudo. Kenji San was very helpful in assisting us in honing our new-found skill (and perhaps future hobby) and allowed us to continue to practice until we were fully satisfied. All six of my family members (including myself) enjoyed this traditional archery experience a bunch.
