The first place I stayed when I first came to Japan was across the road from Baji Koen. It gave me a romanticised view of Tokyo, but not a fragrant impression on weekends.

Mmmm! Basashi! Oishiiiiiii! Your days are numbered horse.

My uncle had horses on his 1,500 hectare farm in Oz. I feel so sorry for these pampered ponies living in Tokyo. They are not horses at all. They are pampered pets living a Japanese dog's life.

Any chance to bash Japan, right?

Good shot, I have to say I've never been here and can't get my mind around people keeping horses in Tokyo.

Either that horse is a pony - or the jockey is a midget! Great photo Steve Morin - I bet you had to wake up at an ungodly hour to get the shot! It has an early morning mist...

...or probably they are both midgets!

Wow, knowing what it costs to keep a sailboat in Japan (I can't afford it) I don't want to know what it costs to stable a horse! Nice pic, hope the horse and the rider are having some fun.
