It is difficult for a beginner to suddenly stand in front and shoot an arrow at a distance of 28m in a half-day or one-day experience. Therefore, in this plan, you will visit archery halls, bows, practice scenery, etc., which are rarely seen, and actually experience "rubber bow practice" and "maki straw practice". If you wish, you can wear top coat and hakama archery. It is a plan to know the high goals and beauty that Japanese archery aims for.
