Not only free transportation you get free champagne too! AND free tips on betting in English!
I have been to Fuchu racecourse at least 4 dozen times and let me tell you that this is a beautiful course that has recently been splendidly renovated. It's a wonderful day that is very economical compared to a day at most Tokyo recreation/entertainment sights.
Horse racing is fun!
I checked this out last night at InterFM and here's the deal:
All you have to do is go to signup! Each of your friends need to signup too! go to: jra@interfm and write "THE DAY AT THE RACES" in the subject line.
You'll also need to provide your name, address, age, occupation and nationality to win. Of course, minors are not allowed.
The horse races are a blast and you get to go for free and free transportation?
Now THAT'S a great deal!
Here's the itinerary for Saturday, October 23, 2010:
