Description

Join us on an incredible journey into the lost world of the Samurai, as we enter the hidden realm of one of the most spectacular traditional festivals in the world today; that of the ancient Soma Noma-Oi. Truly one of history's great sagas, this spectacular ritual began more than 1000 years ago to test the skill and endurance of the mounted samurai warrior and his steed. This is a fascinating look at the Samurai, the reasons for their demise and their important symbolic role today. A wonderful resource for understanding Japanese culture and history.
