Once you get off the train, head towards Nishi-Funabashi and exit the ticket gate through the dedicated exit.

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.

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)
