After the Games, the Arena is utilized as a permanent ice skating rink open to the community.

Located at the northern end of the Makomanai Park, the arena is used not only as an ice skating venue, but also for a huge meeting, and concert venue.

The stadium has been known as its nickname, "Makomanai Ice Arena", and on April 1, 2007, the nickname was changed to the "Makomanai Sekisui Heim Ice Arena", after Sekisui Heim, a Japanese real estate company, acquired its naming rights.

In 1998 it was one of the venues for the Volleyball Men's World Championship, the Pool D of the tournament was played here.


The arena is a 20 to 25 minute walk from Makomanai Station on the Namboku Line.
