Fujimori Festival

Calligraphy on horseback! Now that would take some serious skill and practice. There’s a modern Fujimori Festival at the eponymous shrine, though I dare not lean too hard on auto-translation to proclaim a direct linkage. Still, “Shrine of the horses and learning” sounds about right.
