Japan at the CHIO Aachen
Yabusame and Taiko Drums, Manga and Olympic Games
Breath-taking landscapes, rich tradition, high-speed trains, temples and pop culture: Japan has many facets. A great deal of which can be experienced at the World Equestrian Festival, CHIO Aachen 2020 – especially during the Opening Ceremony on the evening of June 2nd, 2020.
Of course, the focus of attention is on the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. “The Olympics will play a dominating role in the Opening Ceremony – cheerful, colourful and sporty”, commented Frank Kemperman, Chairman of the Aachen-Laurensberger Rennverein e.V. (ALRV), organisers of the event.
From Japan, among others, a 130-man strong marching band and mounted archers will be taking part. In addition to a traditional group the archers – “Yabusame” – are also sending over a modern “Ladies Group”. The visitors can look forward to plenty of music, including not only the “Taiko Drums”, but also to a traditional, Japanese sound, the “Shamisen”. Japanese tradition will play a major role, the spectacular cherry blossom will be portrayed as well as Japanese pop culture with manga and cosplay.
Japan will also be highly present in the CHIO-Village with its own zone, among others the guests from the Far East will present their traditional tea ceremony and a kimono exhibition.
