Important Notice Please Read

Swimmers Guide is not connected with any of the facilities listed on this site in any way. We cannot tell you the pools’ opening and closing times or when Senior Aerobics classes are held; we cannot tell you about the availability or cost of swimming lessons; we cannot get you discounted admission to swim at any of them; and we cannot help you find your children’s lost goggles or bathing suits.

We can and do try to give you reliable information about the pools, their locations, their admission policies, and their single-visit or casual swimming prices. Where possible, we include hypertext links to the pools’ own official websites and Facebook pages, clickable email addresses, and links to the websites of the clubs and teams that swim there. Look to those resources within each listing for more detailed information.

The data in the site is under continual review and is revised whenever the site’s editor becomes aware of a change, but, with more than 20,000 listings, a complete, periodic review of every listing takes about seven years to complete; in many places, prices will change four or five times before we have a chance to check the pool’s official website again.

For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us. There is an "Edit" button on just about every line of every listing, click on the edit button to tell us what needs to be changed. (No, it's not a place for you to ask us questions. What we have in each listing is the latest news we have.)

Also, please consider checking the listings of the pools you regularly use at home or when traveling, as your knowledge may be helpful to someone else who is unfamiliar with the area and visiting for the first time. Just go to the Add a Pool section of the site, read the first page, then fill out the questionnaire.

Facility Notes

This facility, which was built for the (postponed) 2020 Tokyo Olympics, seats more than 15,000 spectators and cost over US$ 530,000,000! It first opened to the public in April, 2023.
The main pool (Pool 1) usually has four 50-meter lanes available to the public and the depth is normally set at 2 meters, but it may be set at 1.4 meters if the sub-pool (Pool 3) is not open to the public.
When open to the public, the depth of the diving pool (Pool 2) is set to 1.4 meters; the boards and platforms are not open for use by the general public.
For public use, Pool 3 is usually set up as two 25-meter, 10-lane tanks, one 1.4m deep, the other 1.1m deep. Some lanes in the shallower section may be reserved for water walking.
Pool schedules are available from links to pages in Japanese in PDF (non-translatable) format from THIS PAGE.

Facility Reviews

This is a huge, new, hard-to-get-to facility. There are giant change rooms with lots of free lockers (insert your entrance pass to allow use). Oddly for a Japanese pool, there is no shoe removal area or signs outside the change rooms requiring shoe removal. Most users seemed to be removing them out of habit.

I used only the main 50m pool. The water was clear and cool enough to be comfortable. Initially, there were two lanes for serious training, two for low-level lessons, and six for lane swimming, later eight lanes became available for lane swimming. The lanes were divided into slow and fast lanes, no medium. No passing is permitted during lengths but swimmers seemed very courteous about allowing faster swimmers to pass at the lane-ends. There were some pretty fast swimmers in the fast lanes and some Speedos and other racing suits, which are seldom seen in most pools here. There were three or four swimmers per lane, most of the time. How much of this is driven by novelty of the facility having just been opened to the public or that it’s free this week, I’m not sure.

Everyone had to get out of pool for a 10-minute inspection, but I don’t know how often this is done.

The bad part is getting here. IT takes about 40 minutes on transit from central Tokyo, plus a good 1km walk. I used Tatsumi Metro station which I think is closest to pool (use the #2 exit). The walk starts fine with one large sign pointing the way but that’s the last sign I saw. Google maps led me on a circular route of at least an extra ½ km circling the facility. It would have been far better/shorter to pick my own route on the map. But the area and facility are not particularly pedestrian-friendly. The main entrance is on the northwest side, but it's not obvious. I think there might be a better shorter-distance entrance on opposite side, but this was barricaded off for construction.

Though this is a nice new pool in great shape the same experience can be had more easily at the Tokyo Metropolitan Gymnasium pool. Maybe fewer swimmers too.
