Tado Matsuri (yabusame & horse riding up stairs), Kuwana City, Mie

4th - 5th May, 2016 | at Tado-Jinja Shrine, Kuwana City, Mie  

The main event for the festival is a horse jumping event. The horses are ridden by young males around the ages of 17–19 representing the six sections of the city. The horses run up a hill before trying to jump over a two-meter high wall. On the first day, each area's representative jumps over the wall twice for a total of 12 jumps. On the second day, each representative only makes one attempt for a total of six jumps. Other events follow the horse jumping on the second day, including yabusame, a form of archery.
This event was named one of Mie Prefecture's Designated Intangible Cultural Properties in 1978.
