Shinjuku Sports Center
The area
Neighborhood: Shinjuku
Shinjuku is the commuting capital of Tokyo, and contains the busiest train station in the world. To the west, there's an office district with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office at its center. To the east, there’s a district with long-established department stores, cinemas and theaters. Shinjuku Gyoen is a park originally built as the garden for the Imperial Household. It is quite famous as a venue for cherry-blossom viewing in March and April. In Shinjuku, many restaurants operate all night, and districts such as Omoide Yokocho (Memory Lane) or Shinjuku Golden Machi have back streets filled with tiny restaurants and bars that reflect each owner’s unique taste and style.

Very good

No Showers, No Water Fountain, No Rowing Machines. Avoid.

I just attended the fitness suite. Lots of new equipment but no rowing machines. Tiny changing room. No water fountain and worst of all no showers! Tiny changing room. An utterly miserable experience. Avoid if you can.

Pay per visit gym
Jun 2019 • Solo
I went to the Shinjuku Sports Center today to get a workout. They have a pretty neat set up. You can pay per visit and it does not require a membership to workout there.
Here’s the cost:
400 yen for a 3 hour time allotment
600 yen for a studio + gym package
(Studio is access to yoga or aerobics lessons)
100 yen for locker storage
200 yen for rental indoor shoes if needed

The gym consists of various machines, dumbbells, barbells and an area stretching.
It’s really a good place to get a workout in.

The Shinjuku Sports Center is accessible by taking the Fukutoshisen Subway Line.
Get off at the Nishi Waseda Station. Take exit 3. The building is located by walking through a small park adjacent to the subway station.

One last thing I found that was really convenient was that there is a Family Mart on the 1st floor. You can buy water or even get a sports drink if you happen to forget to bring something.

Good cheap gym
Jun 2019 • Couples
A great little find just a 10 min walk from our Air BnB in Okubo. Casual entry to the gym is only 400yen plus you have to hire sneakers for another 200yen (unless you bring your own indoor-only clean shoes). Purchase a ticket for each using a vending machine at the reception area - ask the staff for help if you can’t read Japanese- and sign in at reception.
The gym is not very big and is a little old, but perfectly functional and has the basic equipment for a solid workout. Plus it doesn’t open til 9am which is quite late for me. But for the price and ease of access with friendly staff, it’s definitely worth it if you’re looking for a gym!

Cheap, cheerful and has everything you need.

Being avid crossfitters back home in the UK we really wanted to find boxes to use throughout Japan. Unfortunately at roughly £30 for a drop in it just wasnt feasible. After searching high and low we came across the Shinjuku Sports Center. It's worth noting we tried the Tokyo Metropolitan Gym first but its currently closed for refurb and didn't look like it was opening any time soon.
The shinjuku sports center has the following in the gym:
Weights machines
Stretching mats & foam rollers
But most importantly a free weights section with a bench press, squat rack + Olympic weightlifting platforms although no bumper plates so you cant drop the weights.
No outside shoes so you can either hire trainers for ¥200 or otherwise wear clean/new trainers. Cost of entry is ¥400 which you pay into the vending machine in the lobby. Ask a staff member for help unless you can understand Japanese! Cash only!
