Fitness: Skypool


With its iconic glass dome, the Club's rooftop swimming pool, the Sky Pool, hosts a plethora of programs and annual meets for adults and children.

The year-round, six-lane, 25-meter pool, which boasts stunning views of Tokyo Tower and even Mount Fuji on clear days, is also a popular spot for dedicated early-morning lap swimmers and those looking to unwind with a book on the sun deck.

And since the specially designed roof blocks out more than 99 percent of UV rays, Members don't need to use excessive sunblock while swimming.

The Sky Pool caters to all swim abilities through a range of programs, from learning the basics for the first time to enhancing your stroke for fun or in preparation for a swim event or triathlon.

Aqua Fitness, meanwhile, is the ultimate morning pick-me-up for those who want a high-intensity workout that doesn't place stress on the joints.

Experienced triathletes looking for training partners or Members in search of a new challenge can join the E3 Fit Swim Program, which uses the Sky Pool as its base. Contact the Sky Pool Office for details.

The Sky Pool's team of professional instructors and coaches can guide children through every stage of swim development, from their first contact with water in the Parents and Tots class through group or private lessons.

Kids wishing to improve their technique and fitness while gaining confidence and race experience can join the Mudsharks, the Club's dynamic swim team program.

The program, which includes Mudsharks Group lessons for ages 4 to 7 and five senior stages, develops participants' swim skills and camaraderie through regular fun training sessions and swim meets.

Check the Mudsharks swim meet calendar.

Ages 5 and under can enjoy water in a safe environment at a vibrant-colored splash pool and water slide while moms and dads catch a few rays nearby.

A guardian must be present at the Kid’s Water Park at all times.

Daily: 5:45am–sunset
