Swimming in Japan

With temperatures rising for the summer it can be easy to resort to staying inside as often as possible. Though the air conditioning at home might be necessary sometimes, for Kobe residents and visitors, there are a multitude of other ways to stay cool while also getting out of the house! Not only are there many beaches, rivers, and waterfalls for you to jump in, there are also many pool facilities for you to get your swimming fix this summer!

Whether you prefer to wade in the water with your family, practice your diving, take swimming fitness classes, or swim some laps, you won’t have trouble finding a pool that suits you.
