This is a map of Nakayama Racecourse.
1-1-1 Kosaku, Funabashi City, Chiba Prefecture
go by train
From Narita Airport
Walk from Narita Airport [Terminal 3] to Airport Terminal 2 Station.
Take the Keisei Narita Sky Access Limited Express to Higashi Matsudo.
At Higashi Matsudo, take the train from platform 2 of the Musashino Line and get off at the second stop [Funabashi Houten].
From Tokyo station
From the Keiyo Line, take the train bound for "Fuchuhonmachi" or "Higashi Tokorozawa" and get off at "Funabashi Houten".
It's quite far away, so it would be a good idea to ask the station staff.
If you go by bus
10 minutes from Keisei Higashi-Nakayama Station to “Nakayama Keibajo”
From the temporary entrance to the admission ticket office
Once you get off the train, head towards Nishi-Funabashi and exit the ticket gate through the dedicated exit.
You can buy it at the ticket office, or you can buy it at the JRA ticket site and show the issued QR code.
If you would like to purchase a ticket, please ask the staff and they will let you know.
Go inside and walk down the road called [Nucky Mall].
Here, photos of the winning horses [Satsukisho] and [Arimakinen] are displayed on both sides.
There are so many of them that I would like to introduce them to you.
There is an entrance at the beginning, but it is not the main but the infield.
The paddock is a place to showcase your dog's condition and temperament.
It was a sunny day, and the horse hair was clearly visible.
Check that the horse is not shaking its head violently, that it is not sweating profusely, and that its rags (horse manure) are not soft.

Admission to post position
This is when a horse enters the post position.
Run the horse lightly to calm it down and warm it up.
It's great to be able to see them up close than during a race.
*Click to enlarge
Also, since you enter the main horse track from the road in front of the finish line, there are many people holding their cameras here.
It's fun because you can see it up close!
Seeing it live is completely different.
You can see that the small horse is coming towards you.
The horse is running as fast as it can, making a "do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do" sound.
There is no "pakara pakara" (lol)

There are many restaurants at Nakayama Racecourse.
There are various shops including Chinese restaurants such as ramen and chain restaurants such as Yoshinoya.
In addition to meals, they also sell snacks and a variety of alcoholic beverages.
Please try the stadium gourmet way of enjoying Nakayama Racecourse!
First, let me introduce you to infield.
This is a shop that sells light snacks such as alcohol (beer), soft drinks, and ice cream.
We also sell Japanese sweets with red bean paste called GI Yaki!
If you win, why not grab a bite on your way home (even if you don't win, please do!)
2023 Nakayama Racecourse Gourmet Grand Prix
We won first place in the food category!
This is a ramen specialty store.
*I'm also on Twitter. I also followed Nakayama Tech and received a follow from Fukumen!
Ramen comes in a wide variety of flavors, including soy sauce, miso, and umami salt.
There is a wide variety of options, from light meals like pilaf and rice balls to snacks like chicken wings and potatoes.
We are located on the mezzanine floor on the left after entering the Baba.
Of course there was alcohol available, and the representative ordered the grape chuhai, which was very delicious!
What is especially noteworthy is the low price!
Now, let me introduce main.
Suishoro（1st basement floor）
Enter from Nakayama Racecourse's Honbaba (the farthest entrance) and Kichi will be on your right.
The ramen shops at Nakayama Racecourse are generally well-stocked.
On this day, I received "Wonton pork noodles". Delicious!
Sanko（1st basement floor）
Enter main through the temporary entrance and the store will be on your left.
I ordered Inaka Shiruko.
Is it surprisingly expensive at 400 yen? When I received it, I thought it was worth more than the price because it was quite large.
Sushi wakana（1st basement floor）
We sell tuna sushi and alcohol.
It's fatty and very tasty.
Please make your predictions and enjoy some delicious sushi!
domani（1st basement floor）
A soup pasta specialty store. I recommend the basil pasta, but it's quite hearty!
I ate crab cream pasta!
PIZZARA EXPRESS（1st basement floor）
This is the Racecourse branch of Pizza La, a major pizza chain.
The menu has items related to horse racing tickets.
This is a recommended restaurant when you want a snack with a little punch.
KASUYA（1st basement floor）
This is a specialty store for kasu udon in Osaka.
There were quite a few people lined up, and the taste was guaranteed.
By the way, Kasu udon seems to be Sanspo's Nagisa's favorite udon, and she seems to be doing well lately!
Maybe there is a jinx that hits the mark!?
Both the noodles and the kasu are exquisite, and I'm starting to feel like the main race is going to hit the mark.
I successfully won the Ocean Stakes 3 times in a row and was jinxed by Kasu Udon!
I ate beef tendon udon.
Ramen ya raku（1st floor）
This is a reasonably priced ramen shop.
Is the soup soy sauce based.
In addition to ramen, they also sell large-sized grills, motsu-yaki, etc., and are characterized by their wide range of products.
The soy sauce base is topped with hearty pork and flavored eggs, making it very filling!
Recommended for people who want to eat a lot of food!!
Garlic back fat ramen
They used plenty of ingredients that increase appetite.
However, it didn't feel heavy on my stomach and the soup wasn't too thick, so it was easy to eat.
red offal skewer, White offal skewer, pork rice
Offal is the perfect accompaniment to alcohol.
White is elastic and red is soft.
Both are well-cooked and delicious, so I recommend them.
The pork rice was also delicious because it used pork and had a secret sauce on it.
Do miso（1st floor）
A restaurant specializing in Tokyo-style miso ramen.
I'm curious about the 5 slices of pork (I've always loved pork).
I recommend going hungry to eat.
Stick House Paddock V（1st floor）
The signature menu is hayashi rice and beef tendon stew.
They also sell alcohol, so many people seem to buy something to snack on.
The menu ranges from Osaka Black to ramen with Doederleinia berycoides.
This is a soy sauce ramen specialty store.
Mix in the garlic and scoop up the noodles from the bottom to coat them before eating, it's really delicious!
Golden Chinese noodles with Doederleinia berycoides and freshwater clams
It also contains freshwater clams, and it was very delicious as it matched well with the green sea bream.
The char siu had an old-fashioned sweetness, and the flavored eggs were well seasoned.
I uploaded a short video of Nodoguro Ramen!
This is a standing style that is standard at racetracks.
Recommended as the menu is extensive.
2023 Nakayama Racecourse Gourmet Grand Prix
We won first place in the sweets and snacks category!
It feels like a snack shop, but it also has the atmosphere of an old-fashioned coffee shop.
There is no food menu, but it is a coffee shop with a wide variety of drinks.
They also sell beer, so be sure to stop by if you want a drink.
Many people order coffee mocha floats, so be sure to give them a try!
Kyodaru GARDEN（2nd floor）
Mainly Japanese cuisine, with menus such as eel rice bowl, seafood bowl, and katsudon.
The taste is guaranteed (I've been there many times in the past), so if you have the time, go for it!
Topukapi（1st basement floor）
Pork curry is an exceptional price at 450 yen.
I had the beef curry for 500 yen (still cheap), but it was traditional and had a good taste.
After eating the curry, I successfully completed the main race!
I got back 7050 yen.
Torisen（1st basement floor）
This is a restaurant specializing in chicken (mainly fried chicken).
You can have the fried chicken alone, or if you're really into it, the chicken set that comes with fries and baguette is good.
They have a variety of menus and are recommended.
As for the taste, I ate the "bone-in chicken'' with a crispy coating and a fluffy inside.
Fukumitsu（1st basement floor）
There are also snacks ranging from yakisoba to takoyaki, fries, and homemade fried chicken.
They have a wide selection of drinks, so it's more like a small snack bar.
What is Park Winds?
A racetrack that does not host races but sells horse racing tickets is called this.
You don't need an admission ticket, and you can enjoy gourmet food too!
Turfy shop (goods shop)
We sell stuffed animals, jockey and horse goods, etc.
We also sell commemorative towels and T-shirts.
I think you can buy it as a souvenir!
What did you think.
Many young couples, families, and people from overseas visit here.
There is also a lawn in the infield, so you can relax.
Many people come purely to take photos, and it is becoming a place that can be enjoyed from various perspectives.
Please come and visit us when you come to Japan!
