Female Japanese archer, photographed by Tony Jarry.  Note to the photo:  “The northern part of Japan is the place where the majority of archers are women. This event is a women’s only event. They ride and shoot at fixed targets. Towada has the most women archers in Japan. This City also has the most women archers in the country. Very traditional sport.”

I like Towada.
