I went to Tokyo Racecourse using the Keio Racecourse Line to watch the NHK Mile Cup

JRA received an invitation letter from the 15th NHK Mile CupWe decided to head to the Tokyo Racecourse where the race will take place. If it is Kyoto Racecourse it is Yodo station of Keihin main line, and if it is Hanshin racecourse, there are nearest stations to Incheon Station of Hankyu Imazu Line, but in the case of Tokyo Racecourse the Keio Line will be nearest. The station name is straight "Fuchu horse race front gate". It is a station in the main gate of the racetrack. Also, in recent years renewal from the station to the racecourse is connected by a communication passage, so that you can go to the racecourse without hesitation.

So, I went to the Tokyo Racecourse using the Keio Racecourse Line.
Keio Line Higashi Fuza station. From here the racecourse line extends to Fuchu horse race front gate station which is the nearest station of Tokyo Racecourse.

Even though the NHK Mile Cup which is the G - 1 race is held today, despite being in the 9 o'clock position, there are quite a few people. However, it seems that there are more days like Derby than this.

Arrived at Fuchu Racecourse Mononmae station in about 2 minutes from Higashifuji station.

The vehicle on the left now got on. It is an 8-car train, although it runs only 1 station section in 2 minutes.

The grass growing condition that it is likely to believe even if you are told a joke that "Abolition at the end of this month is decided".

The previous vehicle went straight back.

The station home is considerably wider in order to cope with congestion.

Going to work depends on people, but on the way back, many people come home as soon as the main race ends, and congestion is not half end. Therefore, there is a notice to buy a ticket in advance. This can be seen commonly near the baseball stadium and stations near the racecourse.

Timetable from Fuchu racecourse gateon station. Timetable at horse race holding on the left. Compared to the regular holiday schedule next to it and the weekday schedule on the right side, the number of books from the late 15th to the 17th is conspicuous.

After 15:52, 9 trains are on express for Shinjuku or Shinjuku Shinjuku, considerably convenience is taken into consideration.

Well, I will get off the station and head towards the race track. From the station to the racecourse are connected by a communication passage so you can move without getting wet with rain.

First, as soon as leaving the station, there is a statue of "Golden horse (Ahalteque)" on the left. Ahalteque is not the name of a unique horse, it is rich in endurance, one of the horse varieties used in Central Asia such as Turkmenistan, and it seems that it can run for several thousand kilometers a day.

NHK Mile Cup this week, next week will be Victoria Mile and G I race will continue.

The parking lot is also full of cars.

I will head to the horse race track with the tokotoko and the communication passage.

Here is the main entrance. The entrance fee is 200 yen.

You can sit in a designated seat by giving out money other than the entrance fee. While in the morning, the S seat is in a state with few vacant seats.

This is the price of the designated seat. S designated seat is 3000 yen, A designated seat is 2000 yen, B designated seat is 1,500 yen, C designated seat is 1000 yen.

Tokyo racecourse is quite vast.

It is intricately like a dungeon just in the stand.

First of all Niigata No. 1 race started at 9:50. After 10 minutes, the first race in Tokyo will start at 10 o'clock, the first race of Kyoto will start at 10:20. By doing the races of the three racecourse in order, it is taking time to improve the course etc.

Every time a train arrives in front of the Fuchu horse race gate, a lot of customers got down and headed for the racecourse.

Memorial stand on the left side and Fuji view stand on the right side. As its name suggests, Fuji View Stand is attached because Mt. Fuji can be seen.

There are many spaces in the Tokyo Racecourse where you can relax with your family. This is a rose garden.

This is paddock. It is a place where you can see the condition of the horse before the race starts directly with your eyes.

There are a lot of people checking from the top of the stand.

Inside of Fuji view stand. It looks like a shopping mall interior, but this area is an information section.

Something happens during the event.

It seems that he distributed the JRA-VAN original memo pad on May 1st, and he got a present if he got the voucher at that time.

That's why we decided to move to the guest space where we can not enter normally.

General entrance is impossible, I tried to infiltrate the special guest room "Derby room" at JRA Tokyo Racecourse.

Additional notes:
Partly fixed.
