Gym facility - fitness club anywhere?

Minami Takahashi Minami Takahashi, Living in Japan

There are many gyms in Tokyo.But most of them need a monthly membership or high priced visitor fee.I recommend you the public gyms. Their visitor fees are reasonable, mostly about 500 yen.https://www.timeout.com/tokyo/sport-and-fitness/the-best-spots-for-working-out-on-the-cheap-in-tokyo

Hi I will be in Tokyo the last month of March, Is it still recommendable to eat Fugu is there a season for it? Also any recommendations on places to go?

Deleted User Deleted User, Living in Japan

If you wanted to have "wild fugu" it might be a little bit out of season. However farmed Fugu is very common and much cheaper than wild one. To recommend the place I need to know the budget. Starting around 5,000yen till 30,000 yen more or less. Depends of the quality and the place.
