Spa World is great! For $12 you get access to several onsen with different themes and temps. Some of my favorites were the Sakura bath and Salt bath. You get a wristband so you never have to use money and can get food and extra services like massages and skin treatments and don't have to pay until the end. I went near the end of my trip and it was so relaxing and felt rejuvenated. Could've easily spent the whole day there or plan to make a hotel reservation on a future trip.

Upon entering the facilities, the building looked like a dump. First, the ticket machine is on the right side, costs 1300 yen for adults (for both onsens and swimming pool). eventhough we had no interest in swimming, there were no choice - swimming pool were included into the price. 1st) the people at the reception were helpful and are the only ones who speaks English in the whole facility. So listen to his instructions carefully. Youll also be given a wrist number for later payment this is not your locker number (this is for paying other things like food, messages ect.). Then there is a locker area to keep your shoes. And then keep your shoe locker keys with you. 2nd) after the shoe lockers you'll enter the cashier area. This is where you pay later. On the left side there is small room with smaller electronic lockers. This is where you want to keep your valuables (wallets, phone etc.). On our first visit, we asked how to use this locker as it was all in Japanese, however the information receptionist could only speak Japanese. Later I figured it out myself. first just pick a locker you want to use, Then put in the locker # into the electronic display and press enter. and then it asks for a password. The password is actually your wrist number given to you at the reception area. This was not explained earlier. However, you do not have to use this locker if you do not want to. you can opt to keep all your valuebles in the dressing lockers later. Although not as safe. 3) Head on to the dressing room on the 4th/6th floor. Men and Women dressing rooms and onsens are switched between Even and Odd months. In the dressing room lockers, you can keep your clothes and get Sexy Naked! You can either walk straight to the onsens or get your yukatas (Pajamas) / small towels at the area just before entering the onsens (after the room with desssing tables). Depending on the months, you are either on the Asia onsen floor, Or European Onsens. On the Asian onsen, I recommend the Bali Jacuzzi. While on the European onsen, I recommend the lounging tub at the Dr. Spa area and the single tub onsen at the Finland area. Also It is recommended for you to take a shower BEFORE getting into the onsens. After relaxing the onsen, it is up to you walk around in your yukatas. There are a few restaurants and a food court on the 2nd floor, however be warned that most dont speak English that much. Most restaurants closes around 9:30-10pm. We also tried the massage service. I opted for 30 mins foot massage which was really good but expensive in my opinion (ard 3500 yen for 30mins.). The far end of the dressing room, there is a room with reclining chairs and an area with thin mattresses on the tatami mat. The chairs and mattress were quite comfortable however they did not bother turning off/ dimming the lights which made it hard for me to fall asleep. Other than that, there a very small fun area (video games and a few UFO claw games) on the 2nd floor. OVerall, I did enjoy the onsens at Spa world. And its message service were great. However, other than that their services were underwhelming. I went to Onsen Monogari in Tokyo in 2019 and cant help that Spa world is not as complete as the one in Tokyo.

On a rainy afternoon come evening in Osaka this is a great place to spend some time.After initially being confused I managed to work it out.Not really a traditional onsen as such but once you take off all your clothes you feel comfortable.Because it is sex segregated male was European on the day I went.Asian for women but they change.I love to Spain outdoor spa on a cold night.I seems a bit more relaxed that your typical Japanese onsen but a great time was had.We enjoyed it.

After a week in busy cities, I wanted to escape back to Mt Fuji’s onsen but it seemed Osaka was a party town and I wasn’t quite ready for it. Spa World was the perfect escape. I had trouble learning my way around so here are some tips: First the small locker, it’s only for your shoes make sure to take them off prior to the carpet. Put in 100 yen and it will release the key, you’ll get it back later. Go up to your designated floor, there are other lockers there for all your clothes and bags. Grab a pink gown (for ladies, not sure men’s colors) and a small bath towel. You only use the small (hand) towel in the baths. The big towels are only for drying. You can discard the gown and towels at anytime in the designated bins. When entering the baths only carry the small hand towel and drap it in front of you while walking. When in the bath, the locals wrap the towel in their hair or leave it on their heads. Make sure you go around the whole place. I kept discovering more rooms. If you’ve been to a Russian bathhouse...it’s like a bathhouse on steroids. Steam rooms, saunas, all different temps, inside, outside, scented baths, sitting areas. I got a Korean scrub treatment which is additional costs. Please note if you get anything in the bath you don’t need to bring cash. They just make a note of your number. I learned that the hard way. When you check out, you do it at the kiosk on the 2nd floor. Hit English and the numbers below is how many people (not to type your number.) Once you enter the number of people, a slot opens on the right and you drop your number band in. With some magic, it reads your number and gives you a total that you pay in the machine by card or cash. Grab your shoes and remember not to put them on until you leave the carpet area. I’m glad I found this place, well worth 1300 yen...I spent 5 hours there! I hope my tips help your visit.
