The Kamakura Matsuri is a week-long festival held from the 2nd Sunday of April to welcome in spring. The festival has been held since 1959 and today includes traditional theatrical performances, tea ceremonies, and—the most popular event—horseback archery (流鏑馬, yabusame). The archery event is held at Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine from 1pm on the final Sunday with the first arrows let loose at 2pm. If you want a good view it’s best to get there early.
