Just three months after the completion of the 2020 Summer Games, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government (TMG) announced plans for the reopening next year of several Olympic venues for public use.

The Sea Forest Waterway, Oi Hockey Stadium and Kasai Canoe Slalom Centre are all scheduled to reopen for public use. The Waterway will partially reopen April 29, 2022. The Hockey Stadium will reopen June 18, 2022 and the Canoe Slalom Centre is scheduled for a partial reopening on July 23, 2022

Each facility is planning to hold a trial session for the relevant reopening but those dates have not been announced said the TMG.
