When the cherry blossoms are at their best in spring, Towada hosts Sakura-Yabusame at Greenpark, facing the Koma-kaido (Towada-city government street).
Showcasing a magnificent traditional martial art, this event only permits female riders and the horses are a Japanese breed. Riders run a path under the shade of cherry blossoms in full bloom.
In Autumn, an World Yabusame championship is held, in which both men and women compete to test their skills.
