Episode 5 of the Savage Japan Podcast, the racism episode, was recorded at the nearby Kyoto International Community Center shortly after this photo was taken. Episode 5 with its difficult subject matter is proving to be a tough episode to crank out. The current target date for availability is Friday, September 10th. You can hear previous episodes of the Savage Japan Podcast at SavageJapan.com or SavageSnowPodcast.com.
The vivid purple curtain hanging down from above was not in place during the regular nighttime practice session I attended a few days earlier at the Kyoto Budo Center’s Kyudojo. It adds a nice dash of color to be sure.
I promise this photo journal is not going to become an all kyudo, all the time website. I just happened to get a heavy dose of kyudo upon my arrival here in Japan.
I hope you enjoy the photos.
Episode 5 of the podcast is not about Japanese kyudo archery.
Unfortunately, it’s about racism.
Not a topic I chose, but one that was thrust upon me when I was refused admittance to an interesting event at the nearby Kyoto International Community Center, the same day this photo was taken
(And yes, I got it on audio.)
