This is a horse race which takes place in Shiojiri City on the grassy Takabocchi Plateau. With around 80 competitors from throughout Japan, organizers claim that it is the highest altitude horse race to take place in Japan.

Apart from the main race, there are pony rides for the kids and lots of other horsey activities.

There are free shuttle buses leaving every 15 to 30 minutes from the east exit of Shiojiri Station that run to the event venue. The ride from the station takes about 60 minutes.
