The Sea Forest Waterway is an international regulation watersports competition venue constructed on the east and west channels of the Central Breakwater which will host the 2020 Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic rowing and canoe (sprint) events. The facilities include a 2000-meter event course, a grandstand with spectator seating for 1,960 guests, a boathouse with a docking capacity of up to about 200 boats as well as a cafeteria, finish tower and more. One of the venue’s major selling points is its open, expansive location surrounded by ample green natural scenery offering superb views of both Tokyo Bay and the dramatic distant cityscape at the same time. Even after the Olympic Games the venue will be available for hosting international rowing and canoe competitions, as well as for holding training and strengthening programs in addition to a multitude of other foreseeable uses ranging from watersports lessons and leisure activities to events for local residents. The venue will serve as a place of recreation and relaxation as well as a place to practice a number of different watersports.
