Today is our area's shrine celebration,and every year during this event,all the schools near our areas take part in the Japanese Archery and Kendo competitions.

This year,my daughter is also taking part in the Japanese Archery competitions,so I went to cheer her up.

Japanese Archery is a very old cultural sport,and it is quite difficult to master it.The Bow and Arrow are also a bit different from the western countries type,as I can see that,the Bow is very big..more taller than my daughter..and they have to wear the traditional Archer's outfit too.

Other than the Japanese Archery competition I went to see the Kendo's competition as my hubby was one of the judges there,today.

Those pupils competing in the Kendo's event also were required to wear the Kendo's outfit,complete with the head gear too.
I was surprise to see so many young students being so good in the Kendo's competition.It is just like walking back into the yester years..
I felt it is very good for a country to still preserve the old and traditional sports,as we can still be able to see and enjoyed what the people of early days did.
I do hope that all countries will also preserve their traditional sports so that the future generations will be able to enjoy and participate in them too.
