Dydo Drinco Ice Arena

Daido Drinko Ice Arena is an ice skating rink located on the north side of Waseda University Higashi Fushimi Campus in Higashi Fushimi, Nishi-Tokyo City.

It was originally called “Higashifushimi Ice Arena,” but Daido Drinco signed a naming rights agreement and the name has become what it is today. In fact, it was the first facility in Japan to sign a naming rights agreement.

This skating rink has a 30m x 60m rink with an area of approximately 1,800 m2 and a capacity of 3,500 people, where various national competitions are held. The arena is also home to a junior ice hockey team and a figure skating club.

Club members are always welcome and the arena is open to the public during non-event and club team practice hours, so you can skate or play casual hockey as much as you like.

Various skating and figure skating classes are also held on a regular basis for anyone to participate. The skating fee (rental shoes) is 1,200 yen (500 yen) for adults (15 years and older) and 700 yen (300 yen) for children (junior high school students and younger).

There is also a membership system, with a card issuance fee of only 1,050 yen (no renewal fee), and benefits such as easy procedures for use and discounts at facilities along the Seibu line.

The nearest station is Higashifushimi Station on the Seibu Shinjuku Line. Parking is available for approximately 100 vehicles at the adjacent Seibu Smile Park Higashifushimi South Exit Parking Lot.
