Kagami-Style Kiba Dakyu 2016

Kagami-Style Kiba Dakyu (Ancient Japanese Polo)
加賀美流騎馬打毬 (Kagami-ryuu Kiba Dakyuu)

Kagami-Style Kiba Dakyu began in 1827 as a means to improve the riding skill of Hachinohe Domain soldiers. It is a prefecturally designated Important Intangible Folk Cultural Property. Riders are divided into two teams (red and white) and compete on horseback to catch a ball using a pole with a net and to throw it into the goal. Only three forms of this traditional ancient sport remain today, in the Imperial Household, Hachinohe, and Yamagata City.
