I'm a huge fan of the Japanese baths but this place was above and beyond. I loved that it has a hotel. We stayed in a tatami room and slept on some comfortable futons. The pajamas we use to walk around the grounds were so comfortable that I purchased a similar pair and now utilize them around the house. The... More

This is such a great experience whilst in Osaka. The facility is huge and there is many choice of pools in the set area for that month. Worth a visit!

Our 6 year old son, an onsen veteran, insisted on visiting Spa World and he loved it. The swimming area looks rather run down, but the water is very warm. Plus there are some baths and jacuzzis that you can use with your swimsuit on. During our visit the European themed spas were for men, the Asian for women. They... More

It was great to be able to combine onsen and playing with our four year old. We took turns to look after the boy on the water slides whilst the other person enjoyed the onsen facilities. The mid-sized water slides were pretty good for a four year old for the couple of hours we spent there. I'm not sure if... More

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
