We tried to follow some directions that were posted on TripAdvisor and got totally turned around. Once you know where it is, it's actually pretty easy to get to SpaWorld from the subway. If you take the Midosuji Line to Dobutsuen-mae Station, take Exit 5 out of the station. When you come out, you'll be in front of "Mega." Go... More

This is a great way to spend the day relaxing! And also a very interesting and different bathing experience. The baths and massage facilities are both great. Relaxing, clean and friendly place I spent all day here and would definitely recommend. Of course be aware you will be fully naked on the bathing floor (male and female separate).

My husband and I went to Osaka and Kyoto for the Cheeryblossom season 2015. We went to Spa World one evening and completely enjoyed the establishment. The pools are elaborate and well kept. The facilities are tidy and staff was friendly.

The different baths were amazing, in March the women had the European Spa side, and I adored the salt sauna and the mineral baths. My skin has never been softer.

Tired? Here is a place to take a break during traveling Osaka-Kyoto-Kobe Kansai area. I slept here after taking Europe zone bath. Another 700 Yen to get into the Ganbanyoku, it's popular here. In the Ganbanyoku area, there are some steam baths but I liked Austria bath. Temperature was set 38 degree so it's just right to lay on the... More

Spent over three hours here, with plenty of locals that spent a lot longer. A short walk from my Hotel the Swissotel Osaka or from the Dobutusue-Mae Station being a multi-storeyed building with a small Koban / Police Booth located at the front. Entry was Yen1200 where you received a wristband which is how everything is paid for while attending... More

I love it here!! I totally recommend it to everyone who would like to take a sometime to experience the traditional Japanese bathhouse and also to relax and do nothing. The price is very reasonable to go in, I paid something like $12 CDN to get in, it was a promotion, I think usually it’s maybe double the price. They... More

I'm not the sort of person who likes lolling around in the bath relaxing so I thought Spa World would be of limited interest to me but I was wrong. We started off walking around the massage area to pick the best option and settled on the Thai massage place (there are heaps of different massage places). A hour later... More

I visited this place in Dec 2014, just after a snowstorm hit Kansai region. The spa was easy to get to from the JR and Kansai line (just head east on the main road from the stations). The place was huge, so felt a little bit impersonal. But on the plus side, you had more space and anonymity. I used... More
