What can you tell me about Japanese horse racing (keiba)?

Fuchu, west Tokyo

The horse racing track in Tokyo is located west, in a slightly more suburban area called Fuchu city. It takes about 30 minutes from Shinjuku in downtown, and can be accessed on the Keio line.

The cool thing about this stadium I have noticed is that it has its own small train line running from Fuchu. Since the stadium is close to the large river, the Tamagawa-river that runs along the southern border of Tokyo, the stadium is a bit far from the central station of Fuchu city. There is a train that runs about twice an hour from Fuchu station, so you have to time your trip to the stadium accordingly.
