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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

Hours are 9 AM to 10 PM. The last admission is one half hour prior to closing; the pool is closed on the 4th Monday each month. [October, 2019]
Two of the lanes are 'one way' only; one lane is reserved for 'water walking'.
There is a ten-minute break every hour, between five minutes before the hour until five minutes after, when all swimmers must vacate the pool. There is no swimming during that ten-minute period.

Facility Reviews

This pool was only OK. The people were helpful and patient, and it wasn't too crowded, but the locker room was dingy and run-down and there was a *lot* of chlorine in the water. The water was on the warm side for most lap swimmers. Lane pattern involves constantly ducking under the lane line to switch lanes because they have you swimming down one lane and up the next one. Out of three pools I tried in Tokyo this was my least favorite. Still better than nothing!
The pool is a suitable temperature for swimming lessons or casual swimming but far too hot for competitive training.
