My first Onsen experience, we did another in Kyoto but this was our first. The month we went, November 2016, females bathed in the European section. It was relaxing and i even dozed off a couple times in the shallow areas. There were a ton of different rooms based off different locations in Europe and they were all very interesting.... More

Simply a must do while in Osaka. With the 1200 yen entrance fee you can relax and use all the pools inside to relax and deeply clean yourself. 6th floor for men and the 4th is for women, you dont need a swimming costume simply because you have to access to the facilites completely naked!! Have fun and dont miss... More

Didn't understand a word from the staff, but we got a surprise discount. Nice! We got about two hours before closing at midnite. Some floors were closed, that's fine. the opened section is enough. They offer different style of hot spring, european, thai but I don't notice any difference except the decoration. We had to rush for last train which... More

This spa is near to Tennoji train station which half hourly train runs to the Kansai International Airport. If your flight is in the afternoon this place will be a good relaxation choice since it will be rather easy to reach airport. If you took the express train then you will need only 30 mins to reach the airport. I... More

Spa world is AMAZING ! it is not a "real Onsen" as all the baths are artificial therms, the water is not real volcanic water like in Kyushyu, BUT Spa World offers an AMAZING choice of different baths, rooms, and environments ! You will walk around the Onsen (my experience was in the male one) Going from a gorgeous Turkish... More

Me and two friends went to Spa World and had a very relaxing time. The water park part was slightly disappointing. There was basically only a lazy river, you had to pay individually for each slide you wanted to go down. They definitely try to get you to spend as much money there as possible. However the baths were super... More

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
