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

by Mieke

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
Tel no.: +81 (0) 3-3432-1111

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.

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.
Address: 5-5 Yasaki-cho, Fuchu-shi, Tokyo, Japan
