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

It was fun to spend a day here. Euro bath, Asian bath, massage, facial food of different kinds. I love it. Will be back to Spa World next time I visit Osaka. The plus is that they do serve handicap. I saw there are 4 staff who help to bath one wheel chair client.

I don't regret visiting the spa world, but the initial impression was not great. The building and the facilities look tired, and the staff don't speak any English so it was difficult to get any question answered. I bought the ticket at the vending machine outside, and it was 1,200 yen for the first 3 hours on the week day... More

Spa World blew my mind. It's an incredible Japanese experience. I ended up spending an entire day soaking in the baths, lying in the stone saunas, and ridding the water slides. I also got a salt body scrub and foot and shoulder massages. Can't wait to come back on my next visit. Wow!

We alighted at Dobutsuen-Mae (in front of the zoo) station and exited Exit 1, after coming up from underground, there is absolutely no signs to get around. After walking the wrong direction, and found the spa in a convoluted way, we have found the short cut to the place. First get up Exit 1, walk front about 5 meters and... More

Just finished paying and putting our shoes in lockers and about to head up stairs when a worker spotted my partners tiny tattoo on the inside of her wrist (maybe 1cm by 3cm) we were quite rudely met with the lady making a big X with her arms and ushered (basically pushed) back to the lockers then pushed out the...
