Photographer's Note

This photograph is taken from a high school student's Kyūdō convention in four years ago. The contestant wore thick white shirt and a black hakama(Trousers
), and they had released the bow towards the target 28m away in an order from the left, being lined in a row wide. Behind, the players who shoot next were standing by. It is the sport game which requires concentration fairly. And, it is the game which succeeds the tradition of the Samurai age like kendo.

(p.s.)
Kyūdō, literally meaning "way of the bow", is the Japanese art of archery. It is a modern Japanese martial art and practitioners are known as Kyūdōka. This kyudo is taught at some Japanese schools and some traditions refrain from federation membership. Game population is presumed to be about 130,000 people in the whole country.
