The Pool Day After Work


In one of my efforts to deny the fact that summer is coming to an end, my bff and I went to hang out at a pool the other day after work.

Did you know Keio Plaza hotel has a pool? It's right down the street from where I work so it's the perfect spot to cool down during the summer. It's kind of surreal seeing the skyscrapers rise high above us. It's also a great place to practice the breaststroke. I'd forgotten how much harder it is to stay afloat in the pool when compared to the ocean. I think we were the only ones swimming laps but it was fun.

Week day pool nights are the best!

  1. I love the idea of a nighttime swim, but ... can neon lights deepen your tan? :D

    PS: Please note Starbucks cup, everybody!

    PPS: Did you notice how many leaves the keyaki trees in front of the hotel have lost?

    1. My skin accumulates the tiniest rays into a tan so you never know!

      PS: Oh you noticed my drink! Teehee. Of course it's Starbucks...conveniently located in the next building over.

      PPS: Did you notice, too? It seems like the trees have been in fall mode all through the summer this year! Keeping my eye on them...

  2. Seventh-floor Sky Pool? It would be strange looking way up at skyscrapers while on the 7th floor.

    I can’t help thinking of another pool in a Shinjuku hotel.

    (It being a pool maybe those are UV lights. To keep out the glare I guess you would need a pair of moonglasses).

  3. I didn't know Park Hyatt had a pool, too. It looks like it's indoors? I always forget about that hotel since it's so far away! Maybe we'll have to give that pool a try after it gets too cold outside ;)
