I found Spa World fairly average. Admission fee just to get into spa world is ¥2400. In hind sight it isn't that expensive but it ends up working out to be quite an expensive day. I got a Japanese massage in the "relaxation" section of spa world. It was not relaxing. It was like being beaten up. An hour massage... More

Spa World is truly an experience. The gist of it is that it has two floors of themed baths - one Asian floor and one European floor. Each floor is open to either men or women only and this schedule alternates every month. Other floors include a food court, gym, swimming pool and so on. While it's quite possible to... More

This place is an absolute must for all travelers going to Japan. After all the walking you'll be doing, this is a great place to relax your bones and give your body a break.

I came with a group of friends. The main problem was that I was cheated on the price. My friends got two beds and a bath for 14,000 yen. I got no bath and the floor for for sleeping at a price of 16,500 yen. There were other deficiencies, but I don't have time to regurgitate all of them. I... More

This place is basically a huge public bath with many sections with different themes. Basic price of 1200 yen, but I received a discount (1000 yen after discount) by presenting my Osaka kaiyu ticket. Huge variety of themes here: Greece, rome, Finland, Spain etc along with salt sauna, steam rooms and cold baths. There's even a tanning vending machine available... More

If you love hot spring, here is a hot spring paradise in the heart of Osaka. Many kinds of bath styles and swimming pools, restaurants, and gym get together in one facility. There are also a napping room so you can stay there all day!

My wife and I had done a 'traditional' onsen on our last visit to Japan and were keen to visit another. This is less traditional and more what the Japanese call a 'super sento'. It's kind of like a hot spring theme park, and a very unique experience. I'd highly recommend going and I thought it'd be worth posting a... More

I had no idea what to expect when visiting Spa World but was so pleasantly surprised. The venue was so clean and ordered. I felt really relaxed and enjoyed the experience immensely. I went quite late into the night so the spas were quiet but there were people around. I found it really good value also.

If you're comfortable with being naked all around people, and would love to experience an onsen, this is the place for you. Spa World exceeded my expecations because it was only 1200yen for an all-day pass (it was 2700yen reflected on their website), has many stations (hot/extremely hot sauna, bath station, cold onsen, family-friendly swimming pool), is extremely safe for...
