    Little distant walk from Obihiro station. Tourist Office vehicles or station or rent a bike and just good exercise as is. I think race has mainly on weekends, even on weekdays you can see area souvenir shop and Museum, so, don't be disappointed. Some were tourists and photographic panels that collaborated with manga silver spoon, it seem to want some.

    It seems pulling sleds of heavy iron only in the world of horse racing, horse racing. The Central competition horses and muscle quality of different. Bob Sapp and usain bolt, the analogy. Of local horse racing close to the paddock, horse power, can be watched closely. You can buy a carrot at 100 yen and Bamba in a cage outside the listed horses. If children are to enjoy more.
