What’s on

Midtown Ice Rink

  • Ice skating

This large ice skating rink in Tokyo Midtown’s garden area is surrounded by greenery, but if you go skating in the evening, you'll also get the added scenery of pretty illuminations and a view of the lit-up Tokyo Tower. Wearing gloves is mandatory, so if you want to avoid paying extra for a pair (¥300) sold on site, make sure to bring your own. Good news for beginners: Midtown Ice Rink provides 30-minute ice skating lessons on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays for ¥700. Note that the lessons won’t take place on holidays and between December 16 and January 3. The admission ticket includes skate rental, plus a ¥500 coupon that you can redeem at one of Tokyo Midtown’s many restaurants and cafés for a hot drink or snack. The ice rink will close if temperatures are too warm, so make sure to check the website before heading over. The ice rink is open daily from 11am-9pm (closed on Jan 1).
