With it's wide range of onsen's and spa's you have a great choice and boy are they relaxing. For the price too it is a bargain. Have been a few times and highly recommend it to anyone needing to relax and destress.

I LOVED this experience. It was so nice to have a chance to relax and unwind after walking around and standing up at museums for many hours a day. I was in the western floor and there were ~10 different themes. My favorites were the outdoor area, the salt spa, and the herbal spas. There are places to get food,... More

Spa World was the first onsen I ever experienced. I visited here on my first full day in Japan, in the hopes of recovering from any jet lag, and recalibrating myself to the new time zone. Its very easy to navigate as a non-Japanese speaker. You pay when you enter, and then make your way to your assigned floor. These... More

Lots of ways to bath if you're feeling like a jacuzzi. Its totally nude only but you get over it pretty quick. The place is huge. I was bored so decided to stop in. It's a good way to kill some time and see how Japanese people love bathing nude. Its kinda funny walking into a jacuzzi nude with a... More

I'm an onsen lover. But if this is your first experience in an onsen, it is a great lace to start. They have different themed room. One floor is for women, the other is for men. There is a common area where men and women can meet. Good ice cream!

Spa World is one of my favourite places in Osaka - it's a sento on steroids, and more! I always fit in a trip to Spa World when I am in Osaka, and it's usually at night, after a fulfilling day of travelling around the city (or beyond). Typically, I'd visit at around 7-8pm, where the admission fee is only... More

I had a fun time here! I went to the water park floor and enjoyed the outdoor area and the slide where a section drops out from under you so you free fall (pretty scary!). The swimming area was quite crowded however, so don't expect to get any real swimming done. It's more for just floating around and chatting with... More

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
