Swimming pool is one of the best ways to cool down during hot summer in Japan. There are several hotels in Tokyo that have rooftop open-air swimming pools open during summer. Many people think that hotel pools are exclusive to their guests, but actually some of them allow visitors especially during summer, and nowadays, a lot of pool events are held with special themes at day and night. The night pool events at luxury hotels are becoming especially popular in recent years since people can avoid the extreme heat and strong sunshine after dark, and enjoy sipping on cocktails and champagne while swimming. Moreover, these roof-top hotel pools offer the stunning view of Tokyo city with instagram-worthy decoration and themes.
