Spa World is indeed very big in size, however the facilities is not well maintained. Some facilities appears to be quite run down when I visited two months ago. There are plenty of choices on spa in Osaka, so if you are really going for...More

Spa World is a public hot spring with baths imaginatively designed after places across the world. The two floors, the European Zone and Asian Zone, alternate between men and women every month, so it’s worth experiencing twice. For my visit, I went to the Asian...More

It was a good experience. Clean. Bit expensive. Like going to a theme park. Too bad we came late and couldn’t go to water park anymore.

Our visit to Spa World was thoroughly enjoyable! Spa World is conveniently located steps from the Midosuji subway line. For a modest entrance fee (1500Y) you can enjoy the pool and water slide area, which is hilariously named "SpaPoo" and the bath/onsen. We went to...More

We went to the onsen for the very first time at Spa World. Everyone was a bit intimidated- being from the west didn't help. Once we got into the actual floor and changing room we didn't know what to do but simply looked around us...More

If you are like many Americans and are a little uncomfortable with the idea of bathing with strangers in the buff (particularly if you don't feel like your body is "buff"), this is a good introduction to onsen. Our adult daughter is living in Japan...More

We visited the place on a Saturday afternoon and was totally awed by the amount of people at the pool. We only stayed at the pool including doing the wild river and the kiddy slides for about 20minutes. The queue for the big slides were...More
