In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), various facilities around Tokyo may change their operating days or hours. In addition, some events may be canceled or postponed. Please check official facility or event websites for the latest updates and information.
Chotaro-ike is a natural tide pool formed by a volcanic eruption many centuries ago. It is around 50 meters wide, with concrete stairs leading to the water, making it accessible to families with young children. Chotaro-ike is ideal for crabbing and finding fish.
(Please take care on the stairs, which can be slippery.)
For updated information on opening hours, closings, prices, and more, please check the official website or ask the facility directly.
