The massage was the best

The massage is so good! They are famous for shiatsu which is walking on your body! When your back is tight this is what you need to get! Also they do lots of work on your shoulder... read more

My Husband and I recently got a $40 massage. Everyone was nice and I somewhat enjoyed my massage. When we were leaving we walked through reception and there were 5 staff members waiting to harrass us for a tip. They said we needed to give them an extra $40 (50%) as a tip. We gave them $20 cash as that's... More

We tried it because they were advertising how good they are and they offer a sale for new customers. We are used to deep tissue massage but never expected to be walked on your back instead. They used their feet to step on your back instead of using their hands. The therapists were useless making excuses that we were stiff... More

For close to 30 years this place has been my go-to spot for all thins comfort: mind, body and spirit... I started at the original 56th street location after having been tripped off by my ballerina friends at the joffrey and never looked back. The full body scrub followed by the soaking and shiatsu progression is unique and incomparable. The... More

I have been coming to this spa for years, they used to have another location on 56th street as well but it has since closed. the facility is coed as far as the steam room and saunas go. dressing rooms are separated by gender. you can have couple massages or go with your best friend and get massages side by...

Living in Manhattan 30 years and a habitue of both Osaka locations, I prefer West 56th. Both venues provide two hours of escape - starting with steam bath, hot/cold plunge then sauna. in private, you choose the level of intensity (signal with verbal objection/body tension) for shiatsu. Other, swedish, massage is great but probably not as fine a swedish massage... More

My wife and I came across this spa just by perusing the streets of Midtown NYC. The place was very authentic, quiet and relaxing. The four workers were all Asian and the two younger ones spoke perfect English. The older man spoke good English. I'd had several massages in my life and the 20 minute shiatsu massage ($20/each) was unlike... More

I was just at Osaka 46. I will NOT be returning. The treatment I received was neither Acu-pressure, nor Shiatsu, both of which I am familiar with. I walked in with a stiffness and pain in my neck. I walked out with that, as well as an aching back. When I requested a 10minute head and neck massage, I was... More

This place- while authentic and with a fine massage- is the most crooked joint in manhattan. We signed up for a 1hr shiatsu massage, which only lasted 20 minutes. The staff lied to our faces and spoke english only when it benefitted them [like demanding the $240]. For the first time in my life, I am taking someone to small... More

The most amazing, talented, thorough massage ever made. There are 3 levels of massage - swedish/hot oil (for beginners), swedish/shiatsu combination (medium), and shiatsu/accupressure (for the experts...). Amazing. you will walk out of there feeling like butter.... And they have beautiful facilities (both locations) - with hot/cold tubs and wet/dry saunas. Enjoy!

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
