Poolside Tanning or Workout? 4 of Tokyo's Better Pools

by Mieke - TripleLights travel specialist

Is swimming your workout of choice? Many pools are part of gyms that only allow members, so finding a publicly accessible pool can be quite a hassle. Unless of course, you’re reading my list below ↓

Tokyo Prince Hotel Sky Pool  
A luxury pool with a matching price tag. But hey, you won’t be in Tokyo so often, so why not have a swim under its most representative tower, the Tokyo Tower?
Price: adults 4000 yen (Sat-Sun and holidays 6,500), children 2000 yen (Sat-Sun and holidays 3,300)
For hotel guests it’s much cheaper (2000 yen and 1000 yen respectively)
Opening hours: 10:00-18:00 between June 1st and Sept 7th.
Address: 3-3-1 Shibakoen, Minato, Tokyo, Japan

Prince Hotel Oiso Long Beach  

The Prince Hotel also has a property in Oiso in Shonan, to the south of Tokyo. The pool to this hotel is enormous, with lots of water opportunities for children as well. The pool is so close to the sea that it almost seems like your swimming in the ocean.  
Price: adults 3700 yen, high school students 2500 yen, elementary school children and seniors 2000 yen, children under three years 1000 yen. After 14:00 admission gets cheaper (2000, 1500, 1000 and 500 yen respectively), hotel guests pay half price.
Opening hours: 09:00-17:00 between July 5th and Sept 15th.
Address: 259-0111 Kanagawa, Nakagun, Oisomachi, Kokufu Hongo 546

Toshimaen Pool
This water park features an extensive selection of wild water rides, slides and currents. But, they also have an Olympic-sized pool for the more serious swimmers.
Price: adults 4000 yen, children over 110 cm of height 3000 yen, children under 110 cm of height 2000 yen.

Kyōdo-no-Mori Sōgō Pool  
This pool is much cheaper than the others, so don’t expect to be the only one taking a dip. Nonetheless, this pool is a good alternative to the others, since there are also many other touristic attractions nearby, such as an open-air folk museum (Kyōdo-no-MoriHakubutsukan).
Price: adults 300 yen, high school students 200 yen, younger children 100. Note that admission is for two hours, after which an hourly rate applies, which is half of the admission rate.
Opening hours: vary, but usually between 10:00 and 17:00.

Mitsuro foi muito pontual, responsável, organizou tudo aproveitando muito bem o tempo, conhecemos lugares maravilhosos o que seria impossível sem o guia, pois ficamos em Tokyo visitando muitos lugares, muitas linhas de metro, trens e ficaríamos desorientados, perdidos sem a orientação do guia.

Hiroyuki is a very friendly and heartily guide. He knows his way around well and has led me to places that are not crowded with tourists. His English is okay, but he is working to improve it. All in all, I would book him again, because he knows very well about Tokyo and carries the heart in the right place.
