I have seen Japanese skaters at various parks in Tokyo. I have also seen some skaters stop or disappear when the police come around, so you probably want to find out the rules about specific locations before skating there.

In the part of Tokyo I live in it's common to see skateboarding but still not as popular as in america.

Location? 2005/6/28 17:59
I'm not sure how many people will know this, but I'd like to find this popular skate spot which is somewhere in Tokyo(I think). From what I've seen, it's a grey-tiled walkway(?) that parallels a large body of water with a ferris wheel in view. A bit of a choppy description since I'm not good with names.

bring your skateboards 2005/7/4 23:45
Sure bring your skateboards. If you are a true skater, you always take your skateboards wherever you travel. There are some skateparks in Tokyo. But it would be a good idea to go to a skate shop and find out some local spots/parks. You will not get a ticket skating here like in the US. By the way, the tiled place with Ferris Wheel in the background is in Odaiba.

Old head skater 2005/7/5 11:26
I'm 37 years old and dont skate anymore but I still notice the culture. In Kishiwada about 5 blocks south of the station there is a park. It eppears to be public (Free) and they have a skate park there if I was still skating I would be there everyday. It doesn't have much "VERT" but it looks like a very good streey course unfortunatly I can't tell if there is any "Rails" just wood.

What about rollerblading? 2005/7/6 18:32
I'm moving to Japan for a year and when I travel, I usually take my blades to explore a city or sometimes for transport. Are there places to do this in the cities?

Skateparks in Tokyo 2006/3/20 17:15
Heya.
I was told that there are two nice skateparks in Tokyo. The "Yoyogi-Park" in Shibuya-ku and the "Komazawa-Park" in Setagaya-ku.
Regards to all skaters.

skateboarding near hammamatsu/Shizuoka 2006/3/25 18:49
i went to japan with school for three weeks and was soooo pissed off because my school banned me from using my skateboard... anyway i ended up seeing a skatepark in Fukuroi.. its in the main park... across a bridge... anyway i got the courage to ask a local if i could use his skateboard and he was more than happy to let me use it... in fact i ended up using it for about an hour because the guy wanted to watch a non local person skate. (if u want pictures of the skatepark go to my site @ www.fsk-sk8.piczo.com) then go to random pics, it should be down the bottom somewhere, and u will see how friendly the security guards are as they always love having their photo taken. if u go to anywhere around hammamatsu or shizuoka please make an effort to catch the train down to Fukuroi.... also when i was driving i saw some pretty cool sets of stairs

Ferris Wheel 2006/5/26 16:23
The place with the ferris wheel is in Yokohama. I think if anything Yokohama has some of the best stuff to skate. Just look for the big ferris wheel and skate around.

Skate parks and info 2006/6/7 23:40
If you are looking for skate parks (not parks that you can skate, the ones with halfpipes and rails, more towards aggressive and freestyle) there is a good guide on http://www.commotionworld.com/areaguide/actionsport/

It is in Japanese but it has a very good guide to places to skate. Hope you can read or find a friend that can.

You can pretty much skate anywhere but Tokyo is really congested with people and ironically some sidewalks are not the best to skate on (bricks, bumpy, narrow, etc.

I found a few places on the site and will try them out this June.

Skate on!
