Simply a place to escape the outside world, soak in a really hot communal bath and let time disappear. There is a sauna as well, but I don't really like saunas. The bath, the soaking and the float away with your thoughts make this place...More

Quaint little establishment bringing traditional Japanese culture to Melbourne. The shiatsu massage by Claire is beyond outstanding. You must try this if you have chronic joint or muscle stiffness as it is deeply therapeutic and relaxing. The facilities are clean and well maintained. The 1...More

After a long couple of days walking around Melbourne, this was a well earned treat. Very relaxing spa and sauna followed by a fantastic shiatsu massage. Highly recommend and would go again if ever in Melbourne again.

This 18 year old establishment is a real find in the midst of a busy city. Great service, clean surroundings, hot bath and shiatsu is worth booking. It is an unassuming place and location. It is a city bargain at $114 for one hour bath...More

Every part of the Japanese bath house experience was good. We needed a long hot soak to ease muscle aches and tension and Shiatsu to sort out some body imbalances. The venue was calm, simple and attractive and the reception staff were very helpful. The...More

The water is hot and doesn't smell of chlorine (aka it's clean). The staff are really nice and friendly. I always go by myself so I'm not sure if that's the reason why the lounge isn't suggested. The lounge has a small menu and I...More
