They are playing the kemari that is the ancient football at the Kyoto imperial palace. This is the first time for me to see the real kemari game.
kemari (ancient football)
At first, players are sitting.
They put each of their fan in turn.
Then they are waiting for starting the game.
They wear traditional kariginu(?).
One puts the ball on the ground.
The ball seems soft.
They stand on the circle.
The rule is that no dropping the ball.
They are calling something when they kick the ball.
Their wear are different color.
The sleeves are long. I guess it is difficult to move and kick a ball by this costume.
back is two birds
