This was an unexpectedly great and memorable experience. On my way in, I saw throngs of excited and happy families waiting in line to enter. I ended up spending more time than I ever imagined on my first visit, and ended up going back later to have more water fun and relaxation. The many hot pools (and a few cold... More

One more tourist trap that doesn't seem very welcoming to tourists. You'll feel it immediately when you enter the building, where every spare bit of space is covered in large warning signs telling you what is not allowed. Particularly tattoos are repeatedly warned against, and signs with clear examples of non-Japanese tattoos are posted to ensure that foreigners will know... More

This mega supersento and pool is a full day out well suited to bring children of all ages. The (swimming togs/bathers) pool area is huge, as is the (nude only) bathing areas. Plenty of saunas and baths of varying fragrances and temperatures in the sento area. Women's and mens' naked areas are separated on different floors - you must be... More

It's a huge place, with a whole floor dedicated to Asian style baths and another floor dedicated to European-inspired baths. The two floors are used by men and women separately, and this changes in the 1st of every month. Information was scarce in my opinion (which is rare in Japan), and I was confused in the locker room. Apparently, you... More

Even though it is pretty cheap, me and my boyfriend did not have a good experience here. We traveled Japan for a month and tried a lot of different Onsen experience, this was not a good experience. The whole place seemed old, extremely many kids all over the place, making it difficult to relax. Just way to busy and absolutely... More

3 friends and I decided to head to Spa World for the day. We had a blast. When we went the Asian themed side was open for women. By far my favorite bath was the outdoor Japanese onsen. Also of note is the salt rub room---it was soooo hot in there but a lot of fun. I really enjoyed the... More

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
