Make a splash on a family outing

A family-friendly onsen and waterpark in downtown Osaka.


“It is no match for Japan’s luxurious onsen retreats, and nor will it replace the loud, jam-packed amusement-park experience my kids prefer come summer. Instead, Spa World serves as a happy medium between the two while we wait for July. Splashing around in its warm waters has always been a pleasure during the bitter cold of January, but it still feels great now, even after winter’s sting has retired for the season.”

About Jason Andrew Jenkins

In 1997, Jason left his home near Atlanta for a year abroad. He liked it so much that he never went back. After three years in Taiwan and 13 years in Japan, he and his wife quit their desk jobs in Tokyo, pulled their kids out of local schools and traveled as a family for six years, living in Malaysia, Spain, and Mexico along the way. They returned to Japan — Osaka this time — in the summer of 2019. Jason loves Google Maps, carry-on luggage, and most dishes registering on the Scoville scale.
