Banei Tokachi Obihiro Horse Race Track, Obihiro

(4/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
Catch a race at Banei Tokachi Obihiro Horse Race Track, a popular local sports track. Watch "banei" horse racing, where the horses pull their jockeys along on little carts, a sport that has its roots in the Edo period and represents an important part of the local heritage. Head to the onsite petting zoo to meet some of the horses--twice as heavy as thoroughbreds used in ordinary horse racing--and join in during feeding time. Head to the onsite horse museum to learn about the history of horses in the area and their role in agriculture past and present, as well as seeing a range of antique agricultural tools.
