Members of the public react after a mounted archer hits his target during the "yabusame-shinji" mounted archery ritual on the 3-day Reitaisai grand festival in Kamakura, Japan on  16 Sept. 2012.  Thousands turn up to the festivals main attraction, during which archers ride at speed and attempt to hit three targets along a 250-meter course erected inside the shrine grounds.
