“I went there just one time.
I actually live in Osaka and have been to some gay massage shop. Then This shop is just normal massage with no sensual if not paying extra.
And unfortunately I got amateur masseur with no skill no English.
I hope I wanna get good masseur next time if I’ll come to here.“

Nice Place and very friendly spa manager
“Since traveling by foot in Osaka is very tiring, I needed a MASSAGE! This was the best massage in town, I should say. However, when I got into the spa there was no available therapist. The spa manager told me that he got a new staff. However he needed to assist him during the course of massage since he is still in training, so i obliged. He was very accommodating. Massage went well with 4-hands massaging me! Whew that was a very wonderful experience. The spa was clean, everything is well-managed. You got to try this when you're in Osaka!“

Very professionally service
“I tried to make reservations several times and there was no availability.
So I thought they didn't want to make the reservation for me. Finally I went in person and the store was full for booking and I made my reservation for the next day.
To my surprise, they met me on time and very professionally service. I was served very well and only then I understood that it is really necessary to make a reservation in advance because there are many customers waiting. I recommend booking in advance.
The service was very good and for sure i will be back with reservation in advance.“

Made my trip wonderful
“This is my first time having a massage at Japan, when I look at the price, it was kind of more expensive than from other city in South Asia. But after I had my massage a day before I left Osaka, I could tell you the value is way better.
I took a 100 mins Akasuri and love it so much I would recommend to take at least 120 mins.
First it started with a wash on me lying face up naked. I feel a little uneasy before lying down as my therapist is so handsome and sexy. He covered my eyes with a small towel when washing my frontal but my body still have reaction.
The scrub and wash last about 20 mins and then the rest was tender, loving and care which satisfied my soul hunger for years.
Time pass by fast and he worked non stop the whole time. The value of service worth it all. I left Taiyo with a smile on my face and will recommend it without hesitation.
The face picture of my therapist was not available on line, but when I met him at Taiyo, honestly he is so good looking and polite that was beyond my expectation. I’m planning my next visit again.“

Perfect! Just amazing!
“Visited today (Mar 20th) and had the 120-min Akasuri with Hayato. From arriving at the venue until leaving the venue, the experience was just perfect! I loved the post massage discussion with Hayato. He spoke perfect English and he was very warm as if we were just friends talking. I will definitely do it again when I get back.“

Excellent massage, highly recommended
“I chose the 90-minute oil massage. Expertly massaged, relaxing and enjoyable. One of the best massages I’ve had. Thanks, Yoshi!“
David on 13-Jan-2019 | Problem with this review?
“I think Hayato is the best. Other therapists said that Hayato was the most popular, so it was as reviewed.
I went to this shop several times so far. Toru was also nice, but Hayato was handsome and very attractive. And his body was more muscular than the photos.
Oil massage was pleasant with exquisite pressure.
Previously, I could not choose him without booking. I think it is better for you to go there after booking because he is very popular.“

Great gay massage experience in Osaka
“I booked my appointment with Toru online. Finding the location wasn't too difficult by taxi and it is close to the Hommachi station. On the second floor, small, quiet and clean, the manager greeted me and brought me to a small room to confirm the therapist, type of massage (Aroma Oil, 120 minutes) and fragrance (no fragrance option). Next he led me to the small locker room area to disrobe and lock my clothes and valuables in an assigned locker. Next to the lockers is a wet area with a private shower which I had prior to meeting Toru. Wearing only a sports brief, I immediately could tell that I made the right choice in therapist - very handsome, well-defined musculature, friendly. He led me to the massage room, which was a small single massage table room, heating pad on the table, asked to lay on my stomach and he covered me with a long towel. First part of the massage is a full-body shiatsu-type massage - no skin contact - just through the towel. This was followed by a foot/lower leg massage and then a full body oil massage with lots of skin contact. The oil massage was both therapeutic and sensual and was very satisfying. Afterwards, Toru prepared the shower table and I was led back to the wet area where he gave me a nice warm table shower, removing all of the excess massage oil. After the table shower, it was back to the private shower for a rinse off and Toru dried me off. He offered me tea or water after I changed back to my street clothes and we said our good byes. The 2 hours flew by quickly. It was a great experience and I would definitely go back again. On this day, they were not able to take credit cards, so be prepared with cash or call ahead to check. Highly recommended!“

Best Massage EVER
“This place really blew me and my travelling partner away. I had a salt scrub and massage; my friend had the massage - both for 90 mins. It was a full 90 minute, in fact, a little longer. The masseurs were VERY attractive and muscular and very attentive. This place is a MUST. Cannot recommend highly enough.“

Sure the best option
“I was staying only a week in Osaka, and for not have many option for fun I decided to make a reservation for 60 minutes Aroma Oil Massage in TAIYO.
I was surprised and very comfortable, then I came back 3 more times in the following days, however unfortunately had to return home.
I am sure to return to TAIYO on the next trip to Osaka.
All the therapists I chose were wonderful and very friendly, I recommend 90 minutes or more because 60 minutes really was short.“

Surprised about the massage quality
“Finally I made the step to go here and I should have come here earlier.
Good to find whit the website, Google maps and the photos. Warm welcome, very private, good explanation and good price.
I toke the 60 minutes oil massage and Hayato was my specialist in the massage. First I had to take a shower and after that I was ready to go on the massage table.
Very relaxed and feeling my self in higher atmospheres. And on the and a wonderful special treatment. After this wonderful massage I was showered on the scrub table.
He took all the time and is the best massage therapist I ever had. I will come back again the next time I will visit Osaka.
I can recommend this place to you and you will thank me for my recommendation.“

“Just yesterday I had a massage at Taiyo. The place is quite small but has everything for massage.
Book in advance is really convenient by email. I took 100 mins of Akasuri scrub with Hayato. Honestly, i didn't believe much in other previous review about him but he has a sweet smile, he also did the massage very tender. He can speak English well and we have some talk after massage since I was the last customer of the day. I would of course go back for him again for my next Japan trip!“

Hi! HAYATO, can you see this post!? Hope you enjoy the moment we ever had! See you next time if I get the chance to Osaka, or you can send me an email to make a friend and I will be a guide when you come to Taiwan!
TAIYO Massage, the place is small but cozy. It's truly out of expectation and thanks a lot to my choose, HAYATO, the person who is a handsome guy, and he's very polite and gentle.
I think he's a hard-working guy and enjoys the job he chose! Trust me. You will be in heaven with him! It's worthy of being with him at least two hours. I did it!“

“Nice and clean place, the service is very good and I think the price is not expensive because the cost of living in Japan is very expensive. For people who do not have a lot of money, they have the massage course of 60 Minutes for 8,000 yen. I think this price is quite reasonable. I chose the 120 minute course of Aroma Oil Massage and my masseur had magic hands, I felt in paradise. I really think my money was well used. I'm sure I'll be back on the next trip to Osaka.“

ok ok massage but lovely overall treatment
“I took a massage from Toru. he is very handsome and a gentleman.
While the massage was ok, it was the whole experience that was very good.
He also removed the oil by making me lay down on a bed and showered me. This was unique experience for me.
i will recommend this to anyone who is looking at a Japanese massage experience.“

“1. Easy to find location but I got lost at Hommachi station.
2. Cleanliness is OK; facilities OK. Great ambiance.
3. Massage - ok at some points. But my head, arms, thighs and palm were not massaged. No stretching also (maybe they have different style).
All in all, given better masseur, I am OK with the place. I hope they can allow walk ins (they require reservation in advance I believe).“

Could become addictive
“As a generally nervous person, I was apprehensive of what would happen. It's very private, with guests being ushered into rooms to make sure no one crosses paths. The host was welcoming and guided me to the changing room. When I was ready, he led me to the shower and a tub to soak and wait for Hayato, my masseur. He was wonderful! He made me feel at ease, and I was quickly relaxed and in heaven. The massage was orchestrated to satisfy physically and sensually. I will definitely make this a regular stop!“

Really enjoy the massage
“5 mins walk from Hommachi station and Taiyo sign board is very clear to see on 2F. The environment is so clean and privacy cause they will avoid the guest meet with others.
My therapist was Shinji San, the guys look cutie, his massage skill totally released my body stress and make me felt sleep also. I really attracted on him since he is cup of my tea, good service, smile like spring, good manners.
But the price feel a bit expensive. However, I might return to Taiyo again for my next Osaka trip. Lucky that's still can make reservation by mail or walk in because my have no credit to call only data plan for online service.“

Very much above my expectations
“Taiyo's Men's Massage exceeded all of my expectations. I had called the night before to reserve a therapist. The person who answered the phone spoke and understood English well and he understood me. I arrived the next day at the appointed time. It was pretty easy to find the location with some research using Google maps and streetview. The entrance is well marked in the front. The entire place is very clean and the host was very gracious. I was ushered to a small waiting room and the curtain pulled for privacy. I realized later that the establishment is very discrete. All customers are ushered around so that they do not see each. My therapist was running a little late and the host apologized. I paid for my session in advance, 160,000 yen for 2 hours of treatments. About 20 min behind schedule, I was taken to the shower to clean up and told that my masseur would be waiting for me. I always shower well before I have a massage and had done so at my hotel just 10 minutes earlier. But I showered again anyway. When I stepped out, my masseur was waiting for me, shirtless and wearing only baggy short shorts. I was very happy on my face and down lower too. His muscular body looked exactly like his pictures, maybe even a little bigger. And he was very handsome. He took me to a warm and cozy massage room and begin the two hours of treatments. It was bliss. The masseur definitely has had some professional training. I had half-expected a rub and tug but this massage was really therapeutic. It loosened up all the kinks from my 12 hours of flying two days before and the trains and metros I'd ridden since. At times the massage was super-sensual and I was quietly moaning. The masseur's English was good enough but I think he was shy and he didn't say much. I had a foot massage, head and neck massage, aroma oil massage, a relaxation massage and finally a warm water bath on a table. And the super-sensual, safe, sexy fun-time too. The session lasted the entire 120 minutes as promised, even though it started late. The only downside (no pun intended) was that I was face down so much and I didn't get to see as much of my therapist's hot, muscular body and handsome face. After I was dressed, he took me to a booth in the front and brought me some green tea. He, wearing a tank top and the same shorts, sat down with me and we had a somewhat awkward conversation because of language differences but it was fun looking at him and seeing his cute, shy smile. I'm not sure what was supposed to happen in the booth except maybe he was babysitting me so I didn't go wandering off while sipping my tea. I offered a tip and he said no. I left feeling incredibly relaxed all over. The next time that I'm in Osaka I will definitely revisit Taiyo.“
