Experience a night at the races – What to do in Tokyo
Horse racing in Japan has a long history, having been introduced by European settlers after the Meiji restoration. While it is not as glamourous as its European counterparts it is still the most popular form of gambling in Japan. Oi racetrack, located close to Tokyo bay, hosts ‘twinkle races’ throughout the year with the main races being held after dark. It’s a great way to let your hair down, have a cold beer and a flutter. Who knows you may even get lucky.
Hi. I am Simon. I am a British guy living in Tokyo for the past 17 years. I am a friendly, easy going, cheerful, guy who loves both to travel and to share my city with others. I love to share life with old friends and new and giving people memorable experiences brings me great joy. I am pretty spontaneous and nothing fills me with more joy than a night on the town experiencing tasty food, enjoying unusual drinks and making new friends. My motto is “Eat, drink and be merry’ and I hope you join me for some fantastic adventures.
