How-Slow-Can-You-Go Horse Racing in Hokkaido

In Obihiro, on the northernmost Japanese island of Hokkaido, racehorses aren’t the lithe, lean thoroughbreds you’ve seen run the Kentucky Derby. Instead, they’re lumbering draft horses who pull one-ton sleds down hilly tracks. The sport is called Ban’ei, and it can only be found here.
