My wife and I moved to Kobe in August. Now that we are settled I would love to see some Keirin racing. Is there a velodrome that has Keirin or other track races open for the public to watch in the Kobe/Osaka area?
Check Fixedgearfever's Velodrome database for a keirin-jo near you. I see one called Kansai Cyclesport Center, and one called Nara Keirin Stadium. There may be others near you. If you haven't seen a keirin in person yet, you should. It's very... different. And the beer is cheap. Enjoy!
Thank you I will check it out. I grew up in a town with a velodrome so I have seen lots of racing. Most recently we lived in Berlin and the Europe six days are a blast! I look forward to real Keirin in Japan.
