I am going to be staying at the Kodokan in the middle of October for a couple weeks, first time ever in Japan. I expect I will mainly be training Judo there most evenings. But I would love to do no-gi or BJJ during the days if possible. Anyone know what the closest clubs are? 'Axis'? "Paraestra Tokyo"? Others? Thanks! The Kodokan is at this location, if it helps you: 1-16-30 Kasuga, Bunkyo-ku Tokyo 112-0003 Japan Subway: Mita Line/Oedo Line 1 minute walk from Kasuga Station Subway: Marunouchi Line 5 minutes walk from Korakuen Station Subway: Nanboku Line 3 minutes walk from Korakuen Station JR Sobu Line 12 minutes walk from Suidobashi Station

Good luck with the Kodokan! I've stayed there a lot, first time was for 5 months. The Kodokan is more East Tokyo, so you could try looking out that way, for example, in Ueno. Or head into Shinjuku, which is about 10/12 minutes away. heading West. I'm living West Tokyo now and there seems to be a lot of clubs that way, if you don't mind the travelling. AXIS is in Meidaimae which is on the Keio line. Pretty much gi, but some of the lads, foreign and Japanese will roll no gi after class. As the Kodokan will close on Sundays, you could pop down to Axis in the afternoon. It's always busy at weekends and in the evening classes.
