Regardless of your assignment, each zone promises to be an exciting and visually stimulating bath experience for the Spa World Onsen Osaka.

Stone Saunas (Ganban'yoku)

Ganban'yoku is a type of popular Japanese spa treatment, usually done after a bathing session in a hot spring. With this kind of treatment, bathers lie on special heated stones placed into the ground and lie on them in order to sweat out toxins.

Spa World Osaka offers 8 different Ganban’yoku saunas, with each themed after particular countries of Turkey, Israel, Egypt, Austria, Korea, Russia, Iceland, and Canada.

Swimming Pool Complex

The Amusement Pool is where you can the area's pools and water slides (the latter requiring an additional fee for access).

Spa World Osaka Tattoo

Does Spa World Osaka allow tattoos? Regrettably, Spa World does not permit entry to individuals with tattoos. No matter how big or small the tattoo size is, whether it is the tattoo ink or it is covered up by a bandage, you are not allowed to go into Spa World as long as you have a tattoo. But if you visit the Solaniwa Onsen Osaka Bay Tower, you are allowed to enter even though you have tattoos. (>>>Check Tattoo Friendly Onsen Japan to know the best onsens in Japan that allow tattoos)
