The All-In-One Onsen Fantasy of Osaka

Spa World has been my absolute favourite onsen in the Kansai area for over ten years now. Well, it's not a real onsen, more of a water park, but where else do you get kitsch so... read more

Worth checking out. They speak enough english that you can figure it out. Great prices on massages, overall an interesting experience. You need (2) 100 Yen coins per person, for all of the lockers! (refunded when keys returned) There is NOTHING shady about this place, it is for normal people and families. Upon entering, you buy an entrance ticket at... More

I've visited quite a few Japanese hot springs and I can tell you its a totally different feeling than going to a spa. Having visited Osaka several times and done all the main touristy things I took to spa world. When I went the women's floor was the "Western spa" and it was hilarious! I had so much fun soaking...

Went with my family. Men n Women on separate floors. I find the place rather dated. But I must say they do provide a good variety of various themed onsen. My favorite was the outdoor. Priced reasonably.

It's a great experience to try this spa! It took me a while to learn the culture and the format of using their facilities. The price was great. When I converted to US dollars, it's only $12...including my transportation & the spa. Next time, I planned to stay over night.

Spa World is one of those places you have to experience at least once in your life. It is basically a spa theme park. And although it is not a traditional onsen it is still fun and relaxing. It is super clean and although a lot of staff don't speak much English they are usually nice and helpful. If you... More

The perfect place to chill out to take a break from trekking the tourist spots of Osaka. This is a 7 storey complex with a range of spa types from around the world, gym, pool (not a typical one you expect to do lengths in) and flumes. I was a bit confused by the entry fee machines as they were... More

Spa World has been my absolute favourite onsen in the Kansai area for over ten years now. Well, it's not a real onsen, more of a water park, but where else do you get kitsch so elaborately gathered and assembled in one place? (Fragrant pool with surrounding caryatids. A mock blue grotto. Balinese alcoves. A golden roman pool. Salt sauna.... More
