This is our first stop in osaka and it is simply amazing! Located near Shinsekai, it is easy to find. Will recommend it to everyone! Entrance fee's only 1000 yen (special offer in April) Best part is outdoor onsen and salt sauna, love it! There are some nice restaurants, a gym in the in the same building. I will definitely...

My kids thought it was more fun than disneyland. They really enjoyed the slides and also liked the spa experience, even though you couldn't wear bathing suits in the spa area. A few notes: *I think the 1000 yen promotion is one of those that always is present. No coupon needed, the vending machines are set to 1000 yen for... More

Come on the entrance fee is just 1000 yen! and you could have bathing, onsen and spa in this sprawling complex. There is not any cheaper yet fun attraction that is so close to JR and underground station like this in japan. (just 1 to 2 min walk from the nearest exit) There are restaurants, souvenir shops, massage chairs, massage... More

Your Japanese experience would not be complete without a visit to an onsen (hot springs bath). Spa World is within reach from Osaka, conveniently located on the JR Loop line. After days of touring, sight seeing, a day relaxing in hot springs spa was truly "our day in paradise". In fact we loved it so much, we went back again... More

As a westerner this is a must experience. For 1000 yen you can stay the whole day. There is 3 levels to choose from, one level each for male/female only and a family level. The family level includes a few water slides and outdoor spas. Lockers,towels, robes and other basics are all provided with arm bands supplied to keep track... More

Before we went on the trip, we always wondered what can we do at night in Osaka & Spa World is the perfect answer. It was truly relaxing and only for 1000 Yen. Soooo lovely!

I went here everyday I was in Osaka (5 days). Very cheap ($10 all day), clean and extremely well kept. The spas are divided into European and Asian floors, with one floor for women and the other for men. They switch every month so I didn't get a chance to see the European spas. The world sauna floor was very... More

Went when the 1000yen deal for full entry was on. (In fact, it is on until 31st January 2014.) Original entry price is 2700yen, so the deal is pretty good as towels and leisure wear (shorts and t-shirts) are provided, as is access to the hot springs, the gym and the pool area. There is also a hotel attached to... More
