Samurai horsemen fight for a flag during the Shinki-soudatsusen (sacred flag competition) at the Soma Nomaoi festival at Hibarigahara field during the Soma Nomaoi festival in Minami Soma, Fukushima district, Japan, on Sunday, July 24, 2016.  . The Soma Nomaoi was started as a military exercise more than a thousand years ago by the Soma Clan in the prefecture of Fukushima.  Nomaoi means "wild horse chasing" and the festival was used as a military exercise in order to keep samurais’ fighting skills sharp. Warriors in full battle dress would chase wild horses in the areas of Shinto shrines dedicating the best horse to the gods. During the three-day festival, more than 500 horsemen recreate ancient battle scenes, medieval parades, horse racing, and horse chasing.   Photographer: Shiho Fukada/Bloomberg
