Visit after a full day of shopping and walking. There were many pools and the environment was very good and very clean. Transport was easy as it was right across the road after getting out of the JR or subway station. Price was reasonable

Spa World remains one of my favourite places to unwind after 8pm in Osaka! I typically wander around, end up in Shinsekai for dinner, then head over to Spa World for an excellent soak and R&R before heading home on the last trains. As most of the family attractions in the Spa are closed after 8pm, the entry fee is... More

If you have a spare afternoon or late night in Osaka this is a MUST DO! I was very nervous about being the whole being naked thing but you quickly realise once your there it's very normal. Most Japanese people go with a friend or two. I was on my own (my boyfriend in male baths) Lots of different baths... More

DO NOT BELIEVE THE TICKET PRICE AT THE WEBSITE. We visited on a Saturday and the ticket only cost us 1,000Y per pax, which is a steal considering how awesome and eye opening the whole experience is to me. Once you had gone past the initial shock of seeing so many people being comfortably nude, you will feel comfortable in... More

I was looking for an onsen experience that was accessible; Spa World more than for the bill. Thankfully others had "decoded" the basics. I purchased my entrance fee - cash-only; it was only 1000 yen vs 3000 - not sure why... maybe off-season? I made my way up to the European zone (odd month). The gorgeous ambience made it easy...

I would maybe go to Osaka once again just for this Spa World. Its dead cheap for what it has to offer. One can literally spend several hours or maybe even a day just bathing and relaxing in its numerous types of baths, steams and saunas. Its a must visit.
