As part of the renovation of Jingu Pool in 1962, an indoor pool suitable for conversion into an ice skating rink was constructed. The rink operated as a skating venue from October to April until 1993. The rink had dimensions of approximately 64m x 28m and featured a red brick exterior.
In 1990, the exterior walls were unified with a light, natural green color, creating a new image of tranquility and elegance that suits the atmosphere of the Jingu Forest.
Since 1994, the skating rink has been operating year-round. The slide-type roof was removed, and a Canadian-made ceiling curtain, which cuts down on radiant heat, was introduced. This transformed the skating rink into a facility with a ceiling height of 13m. Around this time, the rink also started operating 24 hours a day.
In 2000, the size of the rink was expanded to support athlete development, and it was transformed into an international standard rink measuring 30m x 60m.
In 2009, renovation work was conducted, including the installation of heating facilities and interior wall painting, resulting in the current appearance of the rink. The exterior now resembles the red brick color from 1963.
As part of the renovation and expansion project, the exterior was renewed with a design inspired by ice. Operational improvements, such as the adoption of automatic entry gates, were also implemented.
