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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

THIS PLACE IS GREAT!!! A must if you're a swimmer. Not only does it have a decent lap pool, albeit only 25 meters, it has a circular walking pool around the perimeter of the entire complex that must be at least 300 meters; I was able to swim as though it was an Endless Pool! Not only that, it has a wave pool, a tunneled slide-pool for kids, two hidden Jaccuzis®, and a hot waterfall, where you can let the hot water pound your tired shoulder muscles. The facility also has a gym, a massage machines for hands and feet, a full-body vibrator, and an assortment vending machines for hot and cold drinks and food. It's a multi story complex and it's on my return list, even though I got caught in a 6.2 earthquake, while staying in the area.

Westerners: Be aware that there are rules that visitors should be mindful of when swimming in Japan: Don't bring thongs into the swimming pool. Take off your swim watch. Forget the waterproof iPod shuffle, heart rate wrist bands, etc. Also, don't forget that there are 10-minute "mandatory rest periods" every hour or so, when the guard blows a whistle and everybody has to stand around waiting to return to the water. It's all about purity, conformity, and group consciousness.
