Let's Go Swimming in Yokohama!

Indoor Swimming Pools

But, of course, there are plenty of other pools in Yokohama where you can go to beat the heat of summer. In fact, here's a link to a list of major indoor pools: http://www.city.yokohama.lg.jp/lang/en/10/9-10-1.html

And for those of you with tattoos, here's a country-wide site that deals with tattoo friendly locations: http://tattoo-spot.jp/
