Hachioji Planet Park
Planet Park skatepark just opened a couple months ago in a suburb of Tokyo. I checked it out the other day, and the place was amazing. I've never seen anything quite like this in Japan. It just might be the biggest and best park around. There are areas for all levels and all kinds of terrain. The surface of the entire park is excellent, the smoothest cement I've ever skated. Feels like you're on ice. I only wish they had some transitions in the street area, like a quarter pipe or launch ramp or something. Everything there is banked. Definitely fun though, and well worth the 500 yen entrance fee.
