Spa World is certainly a bit tacky, but it makes it all the more fun. There are a series of rooms (I was in the 'european spa zone'), each with their own theme based on the country - e.g. 'ancient rome', 'atlantis', 'greece' and 'finland'. Please note that you will have to go without clothes while you're in Spa World... More

Likely this will be exactly as you expect, and is a great experience to see exactly how the local folk socialise around the Onsen bathing experience. Be prepared to be fully nude amongst hundreds of (same-gender) spa-goers - leave those inhibitions at the door! A wide variety of people can be seen enjoying the baths, from parents with children, groups... More

After almost two weeks of travelling in Japan, I was thoroughly looking forward to a soak in an onsen and wasn't disappointed by Spa World. I was a bit daunted about going on my own but the staff were very helpful and everyone minds their own business in the baths. It was so quiet and relaxing away from the hustle... More

This is the biggest public onsen I ever visit in Japan. It has so many different kind of onsen with different themes. You can stay there for the whole afternoon or evening. They also have outdoor onsen with seasonal sakura onsen (water in pink with flower smell) in April. They have many steam rooms and even sea salt steam room.... More

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.
