Horse Racing and Boat Racing in Japan has a long history. Horse Racing started in the 1800s and became very popular in the 1980s when Japanese horse races, specifically the Japan Cup became one of the richest races in the world. Boat Racing, or powerboat racing as it is known in the west, is a one-man, small boat with an outboard motor, called Kyotei (mean Boat Racing) started gaining popularity about 10 years ago. Both Horse Racing and Boat Racing allow legal gambling, which is very rare for Japanese sports. Here is the Tokyo Horse Racing & Boat Racing Guide.

2019年7月3日@川崎競馬場part2 交流重賞よりもフリビオンが見たかった! という理由で水曜日に川崎へ行ってきたのでした・・・! 3歳暮れの高知県知事賞までは生え抜き高知の馬とは思えない、素晴らしい快進撃だったのですが。。。 4歳から嘘のように走らなくなり、川崎へと移籍してきたわけですね 今回は6着でしたが、長い距離でどれくらいやれるのかが見たいですね!!! . さて私ごとですが、NAR主催のフォトうまコンテストの春のシーズン賞に選んでいただきました、ありがとうございます!!! これは素直に嬉しいですし、少し自信にもなりました! そして夏の楽しみが1つ出来たような気がします、商品が色んな意味で楽しみですねー! そして第2弾ももうすぐでやるみたいですねー(ステマとかでは無い) #川崎競馬場 #湘南ひらつかオープン #フリビオン #山崎誠士 #パドック #高知 #生え抜き #湘南ひらつかOP #ナイター競馬 #地方競馬 #kawasaki #kawasakiracecourse #競馬 #馬 #騎手 #カメラ好きな人と繋がりたい #キタムラ写真投稿 #horse #gallop #throughbred #jockey #horseracing #keiba #horsetagram #sport #tokyocameraclub #instahorse Camera:SONY α7 III Lens:SONY FE 70-200mm F2.8 GM OSS
