Municipal Gyms & Sports Centers

Municipal sports facilities are a great option for keeping fit without breaking the bank. Most local authorities operate a training gym or sports center open to the public with admission prices of less than ¥500 per visit. These facilities usually include a workout area with weights and machines in addition to areas where visitors can practise sports like badminton, basketball and table tennis. Some also have swimming pools, and other facilities such as rifle ranges and golf driving ranges. Training rooms for traditional Japanese martial arts are also very common.

The following is a list of some of the municipal facilities in central Tokyo. The rules for admission may vary, and some sports centers only allow those who live or work in their respective areas to use them. Those living outside of Tokyo can get information about facilities in their area from their local ward, city or prefectural government office.
