KEIRIN!








This was the icing on the cake. One of the objectives I'd hoped to accomplish on this trip. Thank you to Agata-san(above) and Kaji-san of Asahi for the trip to the Kishiwada Keirin today. The races are short(600m) and are only every half hour or so, but it was exciting and something I'm very happy I got the chance to experience.

What the...? They all have shoulder pads on!

Shoulder pads, forearm pads, hip pads, gloves with armoured knuckles.

They've GOT to race frequently, as it's their job - literally. No race - no paycheck.
