One of the most unexpected things we did in Japan - visit a public pool! We went there with our son and went to the top floor where the kids pools and slides were. Once we were done we discovered that they had a whole extra floor (two actually but one was for men and one for women) with tons of saunas, pools and other stuff. Really interesting experience I would recommend.

A must see place when you are in Osaka. I do think it is the largest in door spa on earth. Excellent services, delicious Japanese food, and more, they have the place for sleeping over night inside. Totally relaxed with very affordable price appx. 22$/ night. You will miss it, forever...

A huge spa complex, even including a hotel. We had a great afternoon soaking in the various pools.
To start with the staff have obviously dealt with some really stupid and unreasonable foreigners before. So they'll go through an information sheet with the rules before letting you in. Most importantly, tattoos are not allowed at all. You're not allowed to wear anything on the (gender-segregated) spa floors but you don't need to worry, there's all shapes and sizes there.
We were a bit disappointed at first that it was the men's turn for the European floor when we were there, we'd been hoping for the Asian one. It worked out fine though, the saunas in "Finland" were good and we especially enjoyed the outdoor waterfall pool in "Spain".
We didn't use the (mixed, swimsuits required but can be hired) swimming pool but it looked quite OK, with several slides.
Overall, a good way to spend an afternoon in Osaka, especially if the weather's not so good.

An interesting experience for a foreigner, Spa world has a way of dazzling you with the variety bathing options to be had in one building. Definitely a great place to spend the day pampering yourself. With Spas, baths, saunas, masseuses, restaurants, and even an 8th floor water park. Also highly affordable for what's provided.

This is a cross between a traditional onsen/Japanese bath house with a theme park. There are two floors of themed baths (Asian themed and European themed) that alternative every month for men and women respectively. Aside from soaking in hot water or saunas, there's also an assortment of snacks, restaurants, and other activities here as well. Everything from massages, fish spa, kids playground, gym, nap rooms can all be found here. Overall, it's a great way to relax for a couple hours.
