Seen around town, 3
There's a big Keirin stadium in Chofu, right next to the Tamagawa river, and I ride by it every time I go out along the river. One day, I wanted to go into Chofu itself, and I ended up spending a little extra time outside the stadium gates. They were advertising the next big race, but that wasn't going to start for a couple of weeks yet. So, I decided to take some pictures of the place while it was deserted.
The top photo, and this one above, are both of the outside of the Keio-Tama Center train station. The back side of the station is normally closed during the year, but it opens up directly across the street from the keirin stadium. Very convenient if you're here to gamble.
