Horses and Houses

This Google map shows where I am living right now. It's an older apartment building in Meguro-ku, Tokyo. The street I live off of is called Moto-keibajo, which means former horse racing grounds. Apparently, a major horse track was built in this area around 1908, but as residential buildings took over, the track was moved to Fuchu City in west Tokyo to become the Tokyo Racecourse.
