Yonaguni: Quiet Lovely Horse

Posted by

The first time I saw Yonaguni horse was in Tokyo Horse Racing Course. Since I have got the chance to stay in Yonaguni Island, no doubt I will go to see horses.

Near my house, there is a pasture. On there pasture horses are eating grass. They didn’t fear human as they know no one will hurt them.
