sk8 japan 2006/10/27 21:11
the best advice is to surf around the net for a while as good parks arn't easy to come by and they don't list them all on one place.sk8ing in japan ain't as big as it is in the uk or the usa!outside tokyo you do have to travel but if you look around you can find some great spots. some times its outside someones house!happy hunting

Ferris Wheel 2006/11/26 18:32
Yeah that Ferris Wheel is in Sakuragi-Cho in Yokohama. The spot in particular is right beside 'World Porters', a big mall sort of thing. I'm down there every day basically and I normally see larger groups of skaters at night. In the day theres sometimes a rag tag one or two. Its fine to skate there we were doing it around city officials while they worked on the tiles. The skaters here are really nice in my opinion. Real easy going and cool about skating.

And about not knowing where to skate, I think just make sure you take a fairly decent look around for signs and stuff. I really don't recall seeing more than one no-skating sign, and that was only put up while it was pouring rain on a overpass walkway (It said no bikes too).

Minatomirai 2007/4/12 12:42
Yea I was at Japan last week and I stayed 2 min by minatomirai. You can't really skate the big 3 in front of world porters anymore though. That manual pad in the water front isn't skateable anymore too but you can still skate those ledges. Anyone know some good spots in Yokohama? I went to the skatepark at Nissan Stadium too, it was alright. Fun but the ground is kinda rough

You should try getting to Osaka, go to Triangle Park in Amerikamura on a saturday night where the boarders (mixed Japanese and gaijin) skate till the break of dawn! Good times.

From the earlier posts in the thread, it sounds as though most people are talking about Minato Mirai in Yokohama. However, the description also matches the Center Promenade and East Promenade areas in Odaiba behind Palette Town. This is a wide tiled area next to the large ferris wheel and water, and is virtually deserted at night, despite being close to the busy Palette Town and Venus Fort complexes.

hey John C... i think youre thinking of minatomirai in Yokohama...on the toyoko/minatomirai line...theres a big three set that you can either use as a gap or some ledges off it you can grind...ive been there a couple times but dont even bother on the weekends...way too many people there...but a cool spot nonetheless

i was wondering about tht. im in hokkaido atm but wen i was in tokyo, everyones on bikes or in cars and thats it.

but i do think u will be stared at on a sk8brd in the streets, and it might b hard to even ride sometimes. but if u live in hokkaido, because its the counrtyside and the road is really flat, smooth and empty, its fine but its alittle boring.

its kinda the same in sydney but not as bad.
