If you’ve ever thought about getting into archery we offer an amazing place to start. All are welcome, from fresh novices to experienced professionals. Saiki Archery Land was established in 1972. From there it has gained a storied history, which explains why so many people come to visit – even if only for sightseeing.
We have highly trained staff to see to it that you enjoy your experience from start to finish. Several of our instructors have taken part in the 2012 London Olympic Games and we continually strive to raise young archers with ambitions to be the best in the country and to represent Japan in international competitions. Visiting us can be an eyeopener into the intricacies of archery at both introductory and expert levels.
For foreign visitors to Japan, there couldn’t be a better place for connecting with the traditional Japanese use of the bow as both a mental tool and recreational instrument.
We can even provide additional Japanese cultural experiences such as: tea making and flower arranging (please inquire beforehand if you are interested in these activities). A visit to the range is a must if you want a memorable experience in Japan!
All rental equipment is included in the course fees.
Beginners start at 3 meters for the sake of safety and ease. As you gain confidence in your skill you can challenge yourself to progressively farther distances.
Visiting pro archers can use a handicap system when competing against their beginner friends, giving everyone the chance to demonstrate their skills and enjoy friendly competition.
If you require instructions and training in English, we ask that you make a reservation beforehand.

We offer both an Olympic-style shooting range and a natural field course for public use. The shooting range caters to all skill levels and features targets with adjustable distances. The natural field course contains 12 targets set along a walking path throughout the nearby woods and hills. Fees cover instructions, equipment, and access to both areas. Beginners are able to experience the natural field course, however lessons with the instructors on the close-distance target training range will be necessary beforehand. Training takes 40 - 60 minutes and the natural field course takes about 60 - 90 minutes depending on group size. Generally customers who select this course can expect to spend at least 2 hours at Archery Land. However, you’re welcome to shoot for as long or as much as you’d like!
You aim at targets on level ground. The target distance is adjustable depending on the archer’s skill level. The shooting range offers cover and can be enjoyed year-round. Small children, wheelchair users, and other physically challenged individuals can also take part in this.
YThe natural field course is approximately 1 km in length, winding through the nearby forest and hills. Targets are scattered throughout the course at various angles and distances.
Challenging the field course alone is no problem, however customers often say that the forest is better experienced with a group of friends, coworkers, or family.
You could not find a better place in Japan to enjoy archery and short distance trekking while listening to all the sounds of the forest, from babbling brooks to tweeting birds. You’ve got to try this!

As we all know, nature soothes the soul. The natural sounds, colors, scents, and aromas revive the mind and relax the body.
Our customers often say that while enjoying the archery they serendipitously find themselves bewitched by the sounds of the forest - the soft wind, meandering streams, the colors and scents of the plants - as they make their way through our field course. Many of our more urbanite customers say that archery has helped them recapture a more primal appreciation of the woods. In this way, our natural archery experience has allowed them to shake off some of the hustle-and-bustle stress that comes with urban and professional life. Unsurprisingly, this is the very reason that archery has been used recreationally and as a martial art in Japan for hundreds of years.
