  • Drawn to this from some of the guide book reviews. We are not big horse racing fans or even regular betters but this was a brilliant event to visit. We even broke our journey Sapporo to Kushiro...

  • Amazing spectacle. Very cheap to get in 100 y. Horses pulling heavy sleds on a sand track. Very unique.

  • Every time I visit Obihiro, I make it to this place to see beautiful horses, hoping they will keep this business long as they can. In the same area in a different building they sell foods....fresh from the local field, good for souvenirs,too.
  • 💯 (though best to make sure if horse races are on and the times its running at before you rock up)
