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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

*When the 50m pool is divided into two 25m tanks, two lanes on the shallower side are reserved for water walking.
Hours are 9 AM - 9 PM. The pool is closed on Tuesdays and the 4th Wednesday of the month, except for holidays, in which case it is closed the day after.
Swim caps are required. Bringing your own equipment to the pool (other than goggles) is prohibited, but there is a limited supply of kickboards and pull-buoys available at the pool for no additional charge.

Facility Reviews

Non-English speaking front desk personnel were very nice, explaining via gestures how to purchase a ticket for two hours from a machine for the advertised price. The locker rooms are clean; there is a ¥30 charge to use a locker (change machine in locker room). Standard showering before entering pool. Sauna and showers after the swim are also clean. The water is slightly warmer than desirable for competitive swimmers - but not in the "Too warm to do anything" range of other pools in Japan. The deep end of the pool (which was split into two 25m tanks) had less traffic than shallow end, with mostly a much older group in the water from 9 - 11 AM on the day I visited. [March, 2014]
