And,.... I found the photograph of Keirin in an old age.

I introduce an old photograph to you of forum.
First of all, it is a photograph of Keirin velodrome.

They are photographs of the time of foundation where Keirin race of Japan starts.
Japan after World War II had ended was few of the amusement.

At that time, Keirin race was very popular among the counterplan.
The gambling that bets money on the race and makes a profit is always popular, and now too!!

It was a golden age of Keirin.

From Hakodate in the north of Japan to Kumamoto in the south. Please enjoy it!!
