Thanks to Moko, my host, I had a chance to experience the national horse racing tournament held in Tokyo’s stadium. I was told the admission is free, so without hesitation I joined her and her friends. The location was quite far away from central Tokyo and took at least an hour by train to arrive at the destination.

Even though the entrance was free, people were going crazy on betting. I couldn’t resist either. Soon enough I had this overwhelming feeling when you gamble and the match is nearing the end. I kept spending and spending hoping to win. After the last 12th race, we all went excited to the money withdrawing machines to see if we won anything. I spent 2400 yen in total and won just 550 yen…

Anyway the experience, the fun and the memories are priceless. It was a really amazing day out.
