Trip Report The Nikko Grand Spring Festival

The Nikko Grand Spring Festival consists of the Yabusame, a Shinto ritual of archery on horseback and the Procession of a 1000 Warriors. It takes place at the Toshogu Shrine a complex of Shinto and Buddhist temples and shrines, dedicated to Tokugawa Ieyasu the first Shogun to unify Japan. This year’s festival in 2011 was cancelled due to the disruption in Japan caused by the earthquake and tsunami. I have written an illustrated article on the 2010 festival, providing maps, photos and descriptions of both events at http://www.artphototravel.net/asia/nikko-grand-spring-festival-japan/ to help with future planning.
