4 reviews about Japanese Bath House

11 Jan 2011

I concur with other reviewers.... and would like to add that for first-time visitors the staff will take time to walk you through the bath house and explain the rituals / process for bathing which helps to settle the nerves before 'nuding-up' for the first time!

I love, love, love this place.

This place is wonderful. I have been visiting off and on for over 5 years and do not have a bad thing to say about it. The establishment is clean, well-lit and stocked with everything you might need post bathing. The staff are friendly yet unobtrusive. The entire experience is always a relaxing one. You can just bathe, or add a shiatsu massage and spend time relaxing in the lounge. For those who have an issue with nude bathing, be aware that this is a requirement but it is sex-segregated and has a limit to the number of people in the bath. I have never felt uncomfortable in this environment. It's tucked away in a little street but is easy to find and is like a haven away from the noise and traffic. I always leave feeling refreshed and relaxed.

Approximate cost: $95

I have been here twice and can't wait to go back. If you're looking for a relaxing way to spend a few hours this is the place, the people are very friendly and the service is 1st class

Approximate cost: $80

I am almost reticent to review this place, since I know how hard it can be to get a booking and that more publicity will only make the matter worse. Still, it's too good to keep a secret.

Tucked away in the dingy back streets of Collingwood is an authentic Japanese sento which also offers a traditional lounge and shiatsu massage on tatami matting. To my knowledge there are no others like this in Melbourne and certainly none cheaper. For $100, you can have 1 hour of shiatsu massage and up to 2 hours in the bath, sauna and lounge. Find me another day spa in Melbourne that will accommodate and treat you for 3 hours for $100...please!

Enjoy. But please don't book up all the weekend spots, eh? ;)

Approximate cost: $26-103
