In 1636 warrior aristocracy would practice their equestrian and archery skills in the north-wet part of Edo. In the middle are two horsemen riding opposite of each other along the riding grounds. The right side shows is a group of men aiming at the white round target. Half of the target is hidden behind the pine tree, which is also cropped. A couple of arrows that missed the target remain on the ground below.
