I visited this place in Dec 2014, just after a snowstorm hit Kansai region. The spa was easy to get to from the JR and Kansai line (just head east on the main road from the stations). The place was huge, so felt a little bit impersonal. But on the plus side, you had more space and anonymity. I used... More

It was fun to spend a day here. Euro bath, Asian bath, massage, facial food of different kinds. I love it. Will be back to Spa World next time I visit Osaka. The plus is that they do serve handicap. I saw there are 4 staff who help to bath one wheel chair client.

I don't regret visiting the spa world, but the initial impression was not great. The building and the facilities look tired, and the staff don't speak any English so it was difficult to get any question answered. I bought the ticket at the vending machine outside, and it was 1,200 yen for the first 3 hours on the week day... More

Spa World blew my mind. It's an incredible Japanese experience. I ended up spending an entire day soaking in the baths, lying in the stone saunas, and ridding the water slides. I also got a salt body scrub and foot and shoulder massages. Can't wait to come back on my next visit. Wow!

We alighted at Dobutsuen-Mae (in front of the zoo) station and exited Exit 1, after coming up from underground, there is absolutely no signs to get around. After walking the wrong direction, and found the spa in a convoluted way, we have found the short cut to the place. First get up Exit 1, walk front about 5 meters and... More

Just finished paying and putting our shoes in lockers and about to head up stairs when a worker spotted my partners tiny tattoo on the inside of her wrist (maybe 1cm by 3cm) we were quite rudely met with the lady making a big X with her arms and ushered (basically pushed) back to the lockers then pushed out the...

I agree with all the positive comments about the baths. You can also get your hair cut and have a shave...done the old fashioned way with a switchblade! Very pleasurable experience. Generally speaking Japanese hair stylists cut hair very well...I am told it is easier for them to cut white people's hair...Asian hair is more challenging. So this western man... More

This was so good we went twice, other reviews describe the experience but I would like to explain how to get there as local people don't seem able to help with directions. The web site directions were confusing. We found the way by finding exit 5 in Tennoji station before going through the ticket barrier as you don't seem able... More

This is a unique and never to be forgotten experience that is well worth the trip . . .from anywhere! We traveled from Thailand and will plan a return trip to catch the odd month.
