Spa Opportunities in JapanTown

May 27, 2011 in Uncategorized

For those who aren’t familiar with this area of San Francisco, there are at least two excellent spa opportunities if hot water, sauna and possibly a massage are your thing.

The Kabuki Hot Springs is in the same Japan Town complex as the hotel. It has a Japanese-style bath area (just one, so it’s men on Thursday and Saturday, women on Friday and Sunday.) You can also get a shiatsu massage, and personal rooms with spa and massage are available for both sexes on all days. http://www.kabukisprings.com/

There is a Korean Spa across Geary Street, the Imperial Day Spa. http://www.imperialdayspa.com. This has a similar open spa area with sauna, steam, and a wonderful room with a heated stone floor. You can get a massage or a scrub, and if you want to go full monty there is something called the “pineapple.”
