I'm going to be in Japan for a few weeks in January and was wondering if there are any Keirin races I might be able to attend. Do they run year round? How would I go about finding a schedule?

If you need help translating the page, Google Chrome's auto-translation is pretty good.
I was recently in Japan recently and I remember there were races at the velodrome in Nara.
Here is a list of velodromes in Japan which can translate to English. At the top there are a list of velodromes that have races today and tomorrow. It seems the official schedule can’t be translated on google chrome on the phone but might be able to on a laptop.
Here is a like to the Nara Keirin website. Looks like there are some events on today and tomorrow
