Here is a model plan for a trip to Obihiro, mainly to watch the Banei horse races.
Banei Horse Racing is a horse race that can only be seen here in the world, where horses weighing about one ton pull an iron sled weighing about one ton with a jockey on top.
The 200-meter straight course has two obstacles, a small mountain and a large mountain, which the riders have to cross to reach the goal. Unlike normal horse races, the goal is not reached when the nose of the horse passes, but when the tail end of the sled passes.
This is why Banei horse races are always so exciting to watch, and you can't let your guard down until the very end!
Of course, since this is a horse race, you can actually buy a ticket, starting at 100 yen, so it is fun to play or try your luck, but you can also enjoy just watching the powerful horse sledding without buying a ticket.
Come and experience the only horse sledding race in the world, the Banei Horse Race!
