Meet the Samurai of Fukushima
A samurai horseman rides a bicycle from the Soma Nomaoi festival in Minamisoma, Fukushima Prefecture, Japan, on Sunday, July 24, 2016. Every July, hundreds of people in the Soma district of Fukushima, Japan, become samurai for three days as part of the Soma Nomaoi festival. The celebration, which sees horse-riding participants don elaborate armor and clutch katana swords, aims to recreate battle scenes from the country's Sengoku period (1477-1573).
