  • It's more fun to watch from the second floor. You can see what's going on in the bargaining, or asking how it's going. It is quite different from a normal horse race.

  • It is not a general racehorse, but a racetrack of the banei horse. There is a small but beautiful road station at the entrance, and vegetables and processed foods are sold. It might be good for a souvenir. Even in front of the racetrack, you can also interact with the horse, so the kids might be happy. The horse race was not intense, and the body was big, so every horse walked along the way. However, i think it is good for the family because there is a relaxed air to say so.
