  • I don't see the racetrack up close, so it's good to see it, but it's not a place to go all the way, but if you're near it, please come.

  • I went to all the racetracks of the JRA, but I like Hakodate Racecourse the best. Every year, I travel from Tokyo for two nights. First of all, it is a location. It is by far the best in that it is close to the airport & hot springs. I wish there was another event. It is JAL from Haneda on Saturday, and it is possible to make it in time for two races.
