Gamagori city is near my hometown. So I know Gamagori a little. Gamagori has a lot of tourist facilities.  I never thought I would go to Gamagori to see the boat race. I was invited by my old friend to a public gambling experience bus tour. She is serious and never gambled. I also would like to experience the unknown world, so I agreed with that. There are 4 public gambling in Japan. Horse racing, bicycle race, motorboat race and autorace.  These sports are allowed to exist by financial contribition to the country and local government. However , in recent years the amount of sales of public gamblings has declined and it is said that they continue to make a deficit.  First we went to Nagoya race course. The building was old, so we had to climb the stairs. Nagoya race course will be moved to the suburbs in the near future. Next we came to Boat race Gamagori. This facilities has been renovated in recent years and it is very beautiful.  I imagined older men at gambling sites, but I found young men came here also. It is not necessarily to make a gamble and it is all right just to watch a boat race. I could feel speed and thrill. The sight of the night race may be beautiful. The sea foods bowl was cheap and looked delicious. I didn't lose in total so much. These experience was fun.
