To the south of Shinagawa, Oomori literally means ‘great forest’. It’s pretty much just concrete jungle now though.

Oomori is famous for one thing – gambling. One of Tokyo’s race courses lies next to the station so on race day you’ll see an army of middle aged men passing through the station – each with a rolled up race guide tucked under his arm. As the smarter amongst you will know, betting on the ponies will always suck your money away in the long run. Luckily the ojisan race fans don’t know this and there are lots of cheap places to drown your sorrows.
