Akabane Sport Forest park, also known as the Akabane Sports-no-mori Koen in Kita-ku, Tokyo is a ground facility located in Akabane Nishi, adjacent to the ward’s Akabane Nature Observation Park.

It is used for university soccer tournaments and official matches in the Kanto Soccer League and Tokyo Metropolitan Adult Soccer League.

The facilities include a 105m x 68m soccer field with a lighting system and a Fureai Hall for meetings and indoor sports. The grounds can be used in 3-hour increments from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm. It is a rare, full-scale field in the area, and is popular among local soccer, futsal, and gateball players, who long to play here.

To use this facility, a monthly lottery is held on a designated date two months prior to the usage period (as noted on the website). You must register in advance and participate in the lottery, so we recommend that you prepare well in advance.

From the nearest station, it is about a 20-minute walk from JR Akabane Station in the direction of west-southwest, and about a 15-minute walk from Honhasunuma Station on the Toei Subway Mita Line in the direction of east-northeast.

Parking is available for 38 regular vehicles and 3 spaces for large vehicles.
