Located just a short 10-minute walk from Taisho Station, you'll find a traditional local Japanese bathhouse that exudes a nostalgic charm reminiscent of the 1960s-1970s era. Despite its vintage appearance, the bathhouse is impeccably clean and well-maintained. Although there are not only gay, you can find gay cruising action spread throughout the Konpira Onsen rather than relying solely on luck while visiting. It's no wonder this Onsen is known as one of the hottest gay cruising spots in Osaka and ranked number one. What's even better is that the entry fee is below ¥500, making it an incredibly affordable and worthwhile visit. If you're seeking an authentic cruise bathing experience, this bathhouse is a must-visit destination. The onsen features diverse bathtubs, including jet stream baths, electric baths, and radon hot springs. Additionally, they offer a dry and steam sauna for your relaxation. You can bring your towels and soap, although these items are available for purchase. The peak hours are typically around 6:00 p.m., attracting visitors from various backgrounds.

Additionally, the "milk bath" in the outdoor bathing area is another cruising spot where like-minded individuals gather, and there may be some ambiguous encounters in the pool. In Japanese bathhouses, the gay community tends to be more active as the night progresses, and this place is open until 1 AM. However, please note that it is a bit far from the city center and the train station, so be mindful of the last train timings.

  • Admission Fee: 520 yen

Namba Onsen

average rating is 4 out of 5

Cruising Ratio

This Sento (public bath) is located in the Namba area of Osaka and is highly regarded as a cruising spot within the community, following in the footsteps of the Konpira Onsen. There are numerous announcements and messages on the local bulletin board. In addition to attracting a significant number of gay customers, it is also frequented by many regular customers. However, the proportion of gay clientele is not as high as at Konpira Onsen. The sento is situated in the city center and can be easily reached on foot from the train station, making it a convenient location that attracts a diverse range of customers, including fit individuals in their 30s. The steam sauna facilities can be used free of charge, but there is an additional fee of 200 yen for the dry sauna. This may contribute to the relatively low foot traffic. Overall, it can be considered a favorable aspect in terms of gay cruising.

In Osaka's Namba onsen, there is a bathroom equipped with both a sink and a toilet.
