Kyudo

Japanese archery is growing in popularity worldwide as evidenced by many new and continuing international lectures and competitions. Even seasoned western archers will find kyudo a very challenging but rewarding experience!

Unfortunately, junior high schools don't have their own kyudo clubs, but community kyudojos are very welcoming to foreignors.
