Racecourse with Longest History and Only Looking over Sea in Japanese Racecourses -Hakodate Racecourse-
July 2nd, 2015
Hakodate Racecourse (函館競馬場) is located near Yunokawa Onsen (湯の川温泉). It was opened in 1896, and it is known for having the oldest in the 10 Japan Racing Assoc racecourses. It is one of popular reason that this racecourse is the only racecourse that we can look over the sea from a main stand in Japan. As a beginning of Hokkaido series that maiden race starts, it is held from June to August.
When I read Tweets, Hakodate Racecourse seemed to be popular.
