If you are planning to go to other cities outside of major cities mentioned on this website (check the navigation menu), the best way is always to look for a hotel with fitness gym first because there are not many gyms in local cities which sell a day pass to travelers. Or you can find a gym from below map. This map is a list of fitness gyms which sell a day pass to travelers in Japan. 180+ fitness gyms are listed on this map including all Gold’s Gyms in Japan. It usually requires the passport for ID check and costs $20-$30 per visit. Once you find a gym you like, then you can find a hotel nearby.

Other than hotels with fitness facilities, Gold’s Gym can be useful because they operate throughout Japan and they always sell a Day Pass to travelers at approx $25-$30.

It does not cost any money and you can avoid showing your passport and filling in the form each time to visit. If you are a member of Gold’s Gym in your own country, you need to ask your local gym in advance if your membership allows you to use the Gold’s Gyms in other countries for free of charge. It depends on your local Gold’s Gym membership.
