I’ve been laughing about this on my personal blog all morning: Sebastian was 17 in 1993 and Joe was 17 in 1998. The desire to draw them in shitty multi-colored wind breakers was too real. 


Toshiya archery tournament at Sanjusangendo temple, by Prado

Symbol of good luck and goodness piercing evil, arrows have been associated with celebrations for long in Japan. Toshiya, a big Kyudo tournament organised after New Year in Kyoto, is a good example.
