Hi All!! I'm Tomity

I tell you about information of Velodromes & Keirin track in Japan.
There are two kinds of velodromes for amature race and for Keirin
race(Municipally operated races) in Japan.
There is velodromes of 70 ground in Japan.

As for the velodromes inside for amature, there is 23 ground
The rest of 47 scene is velodromes for a municipally operated race.
You can see the aerophotograph of velodrome with Google map.

When the schedule where it goes to Keirin velodrome to see race when you come to Tokyo is difficult,You can see Keirin race live if going here.





It is La Pista. (Keirin race all over Japan is in real time broadcast)
You can see only race with information of the 1st floor though here is a registration member system.



You can't enter 2nd~ floor,Because here is a registration member system, it is not possible to bet on the race.
Shinbashi station:Near Tokyo Station there. It is the third station in train.

You will be able to see Keirin race during Tokyo shopping.

You will learn Japanese Keirin more in detail.


Repairs: Riders must keep their bikes in good working order, but mechanical help is always near.

Article on Japanese Keirin of The Japan Times news paper(Sunday, Nov. 23, 2008)

Training regime for keirin draws blood, sweat, sometimes tears.
A year at the racing school is only the first step for hopeful pros......

50's Japanese old Keirin racer brake pics.

1950's EVEREST Keirin racer


saddle brake






This was used because of the Roading training.
Traffic was not severe in 1950.
This brake might be for the emergency.
