Another sports facility in Tokyo that deserves your attention is the Kasai Canoe Slalom Center. The official opening of this center took place on July 6, 2019. The ceremony was attended by Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike, President of Japan Canoe Federation Shoken Narita, and Takuya Haneda, bronze medalist at Rio 2016 in canoeing and the first Asian kayaker to win an Olympic medal.
The Kasai Canoe Slalom Center is designed with the latest architecture. The center has a capacity of 7,500 people and the length of the competition area is about 200 meters. There is also a field where athletes warm up before competitions, and a swimming pool on the territory of the center.
Many of you, probably, did not even suspect that there is such a sport as canoe slalom. Its essence is as follows. The canoe slalom competition consists of temporary descents along a track containing about 20 gates, consisting of two hanging poles which athletes must maneuver their boats through without touching them. Several gates are located upstream, which requires a change in direction and considerable strength and skill to row upstream. It is not hard to imagine what impression canoe slalom makes on the audience.
Following the Olympic Games, the Kasai Canoe Slalom Center will host some national and international canoeing competitions and will also be available to the general public. There will be some entertainment activities that you will love very much. Therefore, we strongly recommend that you include the Kasai Canoe Slalom Center on your itinerary.
