Working Out on the Go

Options for Hitting the Gym while Traveling in Japan

Working Out on the Go

What’s up fellow gym rats and fitness freaks!

Rather than examine another off the beaten path destination, today we’re going to be taking a look at how you can stay in shape while traveling in Japan. If you’re anything like me, you can’t go a single day without working up a serious sweat. Nevertheless, finding a suitable time and place to sneak in a workout can be a real challenge for overseas visitors if you don’t know where to look. Fret not though! If you follow the tips below you should be able to find a suitable gym or other alternative nearby no matter your location. Just remember to go a little extra hard on the cardio so you can totally indulge in Japan’s amazing food culture!

The Hotel’s Gym

Working Out on the Go

This is by far the best and simplest option for those who just need to get a serious workout in. Especially when on the go, it can be extremely difficult to both budget enough time to find a gym and get your rear end to it. Because of this, it’s far more convenient to just stay somewhere that already has what you need. Even if the hotel only a bare-bones setup, having some options for weights and cardio within a few minutes of your room will vastly increase the chances that you stay compliant. After all, as the saying goes, failing to plan is planning to fail…

Public Facilities

Working Out on the Go

In larger cities, such as Tokyo and Osaka, many of the wards will have their own sports and fitness facilities for local residents. Often times, these venues are open to the public for a nominal fee of a couple hundred yen. If you can’t find a hotel with a set of weights, this may very well be your best alternative. Personally, I am partial to the facilities in the Komazawa Olympic Park. Here, over half a century ago, Japan first hosted the 1964 Olympic Games; many of the facilities built for these competitions are still in use today. Be sure to do a bit of Googling before coming to see if these public options can work for you!

 

 

Venture Outside

Working Out on the Go

Can’t find a gym? Again, fret not! Japan has plenty of open green spaces for you to get an outdoor workout in. In fact, if you’re a runner or a jogger, the Imperial Palace has a famous five kilometer course that is very popular with the locals. It traces the former moat of Edo Castle (which went on to become the Imperial Palace). Even on weekdays, you’ll find an assortment of ages and genders working up a sweat as they make their way around the circumference of this historic site. Truth be told, I can’t think of a better way to sample some of Japan’s rich cultural heritage while burning unwanted fat!

Exercise in Your Room

Working Out on the Go

Too booked to make time for the gym? Well, as any fitness aficionado likely knows, this is no excuse for not getting a workout in! Despite the confines of a small Japanese hotel room, it’s possible to finagle a quick yoga session or some calisthenics in before heading out for the day. My go-to exercises when on the run tend to be body weight squats and push-ups as these can be done just about anywhere. For extra results, be sure to do a few reps before eating breakfast for the day. This will ensure that most of what you consume goes into the muscle instead of taking up residence on your waist.

Aggressive Sightseeing

Working Out on the Go

 This last suggestion goes out to fellow North Americans who are accustomed to driving everywhere. You see, the simple act of getting from place to place here is often cited as one of the reasons why Japanese remain so slim. The daily amount of distance that people walk in Japan far outweighs that of car cultures. As an additional challenge, the majority of cool spots in Japan require one to negotiate lengthy flights of stairs. No doubt, sightseeing can often double as a long session of mild cardio. Perhaps you can enjoy that bowl of oily ramen guilt free after all!
