純種賽馬大壁畫 / A mural of thoroughbred Horses


A mural of thoroughbred Horses (Niikappu Town) is drawn on the wall of a cliff along Route 235, which is a main road running through the town. In 1877, an imperial pasture was established in the town, after which the large scale breeding of horses for agricultural cultivation and conveyance started. After that, many private stables started thoroughbred breeding and this became an important industry. Niikappu Town is now famous for this throughout Japan. In 1990, a big mural was commissioned to welcome those who come to the town by car. It is 30 meters in height and 40 meters across.
