If you are not Japanese or do not speak and read the language, then go with a local! It's a big, sprawling place and all the race information is in Japanese. I had two local friends with me and we had a good time - lost money, of course! The buffet food was OK, but not great by normal standards. Our table had a great view, but track-side for the last race was much more exciting. There's a huge grandstand that I did not see until the end. On big race days, it must be great. We were there for an evening meeting, so the atmosphere was not so hot. Betting was automated and once I'd been shown how to select my horse, it was easy - but you'll never work it out without the language.
