The Warriors' Prayer: Tokugawa Yoshimune Revives the Yabusame Ceremony

By Reinier H. Hesselink, Ph.D.




The Warriors' Prayer: Tokugawa Yoshimune Revives the Yabusame Ceremony

Hesselink discusses a martial art, mounted archery (yabusame), that did not preserve its traditions well in written form and might have become extinct were it not for the efforts of the eighth Tokugawa shogun, Yoshimune, to revive it in the eighteenth century.
