Kyudo-jo completion Ceremony held at the Senriyama Campus
A ceremony to celebrate the reconstruction of Kyudo-jo (practice range traditional Japanese archery) was held at the Senriyama Campus on March 18. The previous Kyudo-jo, constructed in 1967, had been used for university physical education programs and by the Kyudo Club. With years of use, the facility was in need of refurbishment. The new Kyudo-jo has a new lawn over which arrows fly to the targets at the far end ("yamichi"), and also locker rooms. There are nine practice targets ("makiwara") placed in the mound at the opposite end, which is a significant improvement on the previous range which only had three. The new Kyudo-jo will enable Kyudo practitioners to hone their skills more than ever before.
