Spa Castle and Nabe!

Yesterday we went to Spa Castle in Flushing New York.  Spa Castle reminds me a lot of  Spa World, a spa that I visited when I was in Osaka, Japan.  One of the things I miss the most about Japan is Onsen.  I really loved going to Onsen (Japanese Hot Springs) or traditional Japanese bathhouse.  So it’s nice to get to go to something like that here in New York as well.


Spa Castle has a variety of different attractions.  There are several outdoor and indoor pools and hot tubs.


After going in the pool we go ‘sauna hopping’ trying out the different sauna’s which are located both outside and inside.  Some of them get as hot as 180 degrees!!!

There is also a sauna to cool off which feels super cold, but I just realized yesterday that it is only about 60 degrees which is a pretty normal temperature.

They have a place where you can sit under infrared light as well which is supposed to have healing effects on your body.

The spa is unisex until you go into the indoor baths which are very similar to a Japanese Sento.  This area is divided between men and women.  In the bath area there are showers and a nice locker room with places to lounge and watch TV as well.


After the spa we went to eat Chinese style nabe at Little Sheep Hot Pot in Flushing which isn’t too far from the Spa.  This hot pot is unique in that it uses Chinese herbs and roots and I believe soy milk as it’s base.

You then get to order vegetables and meats to put into the hotpot.

    Spa looks nice and relaxing! 😀 I don’t have a swimming suit though…. Do they have massage service?
    Chinese nabe looks good too…the photos make me hungry.

      Thanks for the comment! They do have massage service but I think it may be a little expensive so it’s probably better to go to another place in Flushing for that. You only need a bathing suit if you want to swim in the pool. For the sauna they provide your with uniforms!
