ASICS Sports Complex TOKYO BAY, one of the biggest in-city hypoxia training centers in the world, opened last November 1 inside D Tower Toyosu.
Here’s a first look inside the facility!
This 50-meter running lane is exactly the same as the one used in international races. Here you can train in the hypoxia air as if you’re 2,000 to 4,000 meters above the surface.
The facility aims to stay true to ASIC’s vision of “creating a high-quality lifestyle by intelligent technology build through sports.” It hopes to cater to a broad audience—from amateur and professional users to sports lovers who want to enhance their performance and live a long, healthy, and beautiful life.
The best features of the facility are the hypoxia training rooms, studios, and 25-meter and 50-meter swimming pools, which simulate the air from 2,000 to 4,000 meters above the surface. You can even do “highland workouts” here, which is now part of any professional athletes’ training, without actually needing to go up high.
You can change the oxygen level in any room. It also changes according to the day and area.
The facility has a pulse oximeter so you can keep track of your SpO2 and pulse.
Many athletes experience various problems during highland training such as shortness of breath due to thin air, aching muscles due to climbing, and other conditions. However, through this facility, one can effectively strengthen their physical condition, reduce the burden on their joints and muscles, enhance their body endurance with short time training, and improve their lifestyles. With the oxygen levels decreased, they can also train their body to adjust to such changes.

There are two 50-meter running lanes next to the machine area, where various training equipment and machines are available. In addition to this, there is also a wall inside a studio where yoga lessons are held showing a projection mapping of an ocean and sky scenery.
As this place is one of the biggest in-city hypoxia training facilities in the world, they have other amazing facilities inside as well.
The ASICS Sports Complex Labo, located on the third floor, is where various experiments are done. Demonstration experiments under hypoxic circumstances are held, in addition to the users’ personal measurements, to provide personal training.
ASICS Sports Complex Lab is a branch of ASICS sports engineering laboratory.
Meanwhile, at the ASICS Sports Complex Café right by the poolside, you can enjoy light meals, protein drinks, and non-alcoholic drinks, which are great for when you want to get some nutrition.
In the Conditioning Room, you can get acupuncture treatment and massages. The pools, on the other hand, have glass walls that allow you to enjoy the city view outside.
The third floor has 25-meter and 50-meter pools.
There is a jet bath, water bath, and sauna at the facility too. Amenities are by the shower and a face steamer is available in the women’s changing room.
Relax and recharge in the jet bath, water bath, or sauna at the spa area.
The fees are ¥4,950 for a trial and ¥11,000 for one visitor use. Membership admission fee is ¥33,000 while the monthly membership fee is ¥22,000. (All tax included. Some programs may require additional fees.)
