I was hoping to enjoy some Ice Skating, just for fun during my trip to Japan.

I am currently in Tokyo and was planning to visit Nikko sometime soon. I was hoping if there are any ice skating rinks around Tokyo or Nikko where I can indulge in the same?

Most seem to be open only during the winters, but I believe there should be some synthetic ones which should be open in the summer as well.

    Use the Googles, my friend. First hit for "tokyo ice skating": timeout.jp/en/tokyo/feature/335/… and the last two are open all year. May 7, 2014 at 6:18
  • @jpatokal Ayy ze googles! Didn't see that link! There are two parks which should be open. Any experiences with them? May 7, 2014 at 6:21
  • @jpatokal I was also kind of worried if I would be taken aback by the pros... I'm just looking to go for fun. Cuz I enjoy ice skating! I think I'll try these out! :D May 7, 2014 at 6:22
  • No, which is why I didn't post that as an answer ;) May 7, 2014 at 6:25

In the Lonely Planet book for Tokyo, page 196, it mentions two:

and Meiji Jingu Ice Skating Rink:

Open year round, you can use ice hockey, speed or figure skates. Rentals are Y500, rink is NHL sized and discounts are available after 3pm. Fees vary (see page).
