Went there with my 13yo son. He was happy being in the pools and going on the slides while I ventured out to all the different types of onsen. At the start was a bit tricky, with very little Japanese, trying to work out one floor was 'women only' and another was 'men only'. Ok for me to walk around... More

We spent 4 hours from 7pm to 11pm there and it was great! I read some comments that the staff were not helpful but indeed they are very helpful. Well, their English is limited and it is much better if you could read the instructions on their website before going. All the lockers are easy to handle and towels are... More

Easy to get to and Excellent facility. if you have luggage avoid the long steps, simply go to the parking area, there is an esclator to go up onto the main level. Food is ok there. It is recommended to dine first in the New World area behind the building. you have much better deal and choice. Must try the... More

Do not go up the horrible long steps if u have luggage. U can go to the driveway and enter the building... More

This is by far the best spa experience I've had, hands down. I cannot even begin to describe how amazingly huge and spacious Spa World is. It can be tiring just roaming around and leaping from one pool/ jacuzzi to another; there are just so many to try. With different bath themes at every turn and corner, this place almost... More

I bought a ticket on a holiday so it was the most expensive time to go and it was worth every single penny ... Or rather every single Yen in this case. This is a multi floor Spa & Water themed attraction more than a simple spa. It is utterly amazing. There are entire floors dedicated to men and to... More

This was the most amazing experience. I have never been to a place like this before but would go back in a heart beat. The first time being naked with a bunch of stranger is so scary but you relax and enjoy the experience eventually. You can spend hours just lying around in Spa's, getting a massage or simply doing...

Spa World is my first onsen experience. As I'm not used to being naked with others I was quite shy at first, but as I entered the beautiful area of the onsen (Asian theme for women in April) I can get used to the place really fast that I forgot being naked was new to me. The onsen area was... More

it is an unusual experience . We've stayed in the Spa World hotel for 2 nights to take advantage of the spa facilities - and to be able to go in-out whenever we liked - allowed us the most flexibility as the spas are open till 6am in the morning. The hotel rooms were very pleasantly clean and modern and... More
