If price is a concern, the best bet is to go to your city's athletic center. There are probably enough workout machines and stationary weights to get a good workout — and shower — in for about 200 yen a visit. Small parks are abundant here in the city and also have a lot of functional equipment that is free to use too.The thing about that fitness center is that they are NOT Cheap. We have one here in town and usually you'll see expensive cars in the parking lot. Yes, it a high class joint.
