Top 5 Spots to Get a Japanese Massage in Osaka

Japan is a wonderful country – there’s so much to visit and discover in every city, town, or even around every big train station. And while that is fascinating for the eyes, mind, and sometime palate, it certainly takes a toll on our bodies, especially if we’re not used to being on hour feet for over 7 hours a day.

That is why many foreigners are seeking out Japanese spas or beauty parlors where they can get a relaxing massage after a long day of visiting. And if the place you’re planning to visit this time is Osaka, nothing beats these five salons:

1. Relaxation Spa Velours

Relaxation Spa Velours

If a luxurious experience is what you’re looking for, Relaxation Spa Velour is the place for you. This salon offers a wide variety of options – from long and relaxing sessions of aromatherapy massage to calming head pressure point massages.

The 120-minute full-body aromatherapy course costs ¥19,200. They also offer a ‘dry massage’, which uses no oils, and is perfect for people who don’t have enough time to shower and relax after a complete aromatherapy course. As a bonus, you can also get Brazilian waxing and facials at Relaxation Spa Velours.

4. Spa No 1

Spa No 1 is actually a Korean-style sauna, but they also offer a range of massage courses and other beauty treatments. However, they are a ladies-only salon, so gentlemen might have to look for a different place. They specialize in different Asian massage techniques, including hot stone massage, steamed mugwort massage (the essential oils make this one especially good for relaxing muscles), and Momi Hogushi massage, which aims to relieve muscle tension. Courses here range from ¥2,000 to ¥18,500.

As one of the five biggest cities in all of Japan, Osaka is full of places you can pop in for an invigorating massage. However, we strongly recommend doing your research in advance, and refraining from popping into the first ‘Hot Massage Room’ you see advertised somewhere on Dotonbori. Needless to say, those places are not exactly beauty parlors. So why not try one of our recommendations above instead?
