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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

There is also a 50m x 25m, 10 lane, 0m to 3m adjustable depth (the depth is usually set at 1.2m), indoor, heated, 28ºC (82ºF) pool at this location. The pool has a bulkhead to create two 25m, 8 lane tanks and is converted to an ice skating rink from September through May.
And, in addition, there is a 25m x 22m, 5m depth diving pool with 1m and 3m diving boards, and 3m, 5m, 7.5m, and 10m diving platforms that is also available only from May to September. It, too, is converted to an ice rink during the rest of the year.

Facility Reviews

We visited on October 1, 2018. The 50 meter pool was divided width-wise into two 25m pools (no bulkhead), one with lanes for teaching, the other for lap swimming. The lap lanes were all circle swim with only one swimmer in most at 11:30 AM, when we started. Swim equipment is permitted, with buoys and boards available on deck. The other usual Japanese rules/customs apply: cap required, no shoes in locker room, shower thoroughly before swimming, only covered tattoos allowed. The pool is a little hard to access because it is part of a large sports park and taxis drop off at other end. Best to take Hankyu “subway” line, instead. It was one of the best workout experiences I’ve had anywhere!
