I LOVED ending a vacation with a trip to this spa. The location isn't the best, but once in it is heavenly. I will return every time I come to the city.

If a visit to Japan is not in your future, try the Kubuki Springs and Spa in Japantown, San Francisco. I could repeat all the positive aspects sited by the other reviewers because they were certainly true. Once past the busy front desk, the street sounds and city impressions melted in the dark communal bath. While I soaked during ladies... More

I first went to Kabuki Springs last year as my husband and I prepared to head to Japan on our honeymoon. We returned this year and enjoyed another memorable massage (mine by Giovanni - highly recommend him) and a delightful serene evening in the baths. For anyone headed to Japantown and/or seeking an ofuro experience, I highly recommend Kabuki.

We had a problem with the spa in the first instance where they had booked us and sent a confirming email the day before our spa date only to turn up and find that they were closed for cleaning. When we spoke to management that told us it was impossible we had that appointment booked, after showing them the email... More

I love big cities, but after a while, the crowds, concrete, busses, noise, jostle, and jive can wear on the nerves. Fortunately, San Francisco has a lovely place for a few hours of serenity: Kabuki Hot Springs. There are spa packages here offering massages, scrubs, and so on, but I like just the communal baths. No conversations, just peace and... More

A lovely friendly hotel in the Japantown area of San Francisco. It has a unique charm about it and is located in a vibrant area with many local shops and restaurants. Although it is not in the main tourist area of SF access to it is simple using the bus that stops right outside the hotel, by taxi, or even... More

I have visited Kabuki Springs and Spa many times; sometimes only the Spa, other times the Spa+massage (shiatsu). The place keeps a distinct Japanese-like feel peace and serenity despite not having been under Japanese management for many years now. Treatments are uniformly satisfactory but do vary between the various staff on hand. The place is clean, quiet, well maintained and... More

I had high expectations and was disappointed. I was expecting more of a Japanese bathhouse experience given the name of the spa and its location (i.e., in Japan Town). There were no robes available, so I had to make due with a flimsy sarong. Although I had requested a Shiatsu, I had nothing that could be compared to one. The... More

I only had 7 days in San Francisco and I spent one day at the Kabuki Spa, I wish I had spent the whole 7 days there. I got a Shiatsu massage which was the most professional I've ever had, I really felt (and I still do) different after it. The preparations prior to the massage impressed me in the... More
