While Kabuki is a communal bathhouse, we encourage our guests to enter a meditative state. Therefore, we ask that talking be kept at a minimum. Cell phone and other electronics usage is not allowed. We are fortunate to have a clothing-optional bathhouse, and ask all guests to observe our few and meaningful rules: no talking and no touching.

Communal Bath Schedule

Our intention is to be inclusive to everyone, while also ensuring our guests feel comfortable and safe. To ensure this, the communal bathhouse is open as follows:
Women: Sundays, Wednesdays and Fridays (Bathing Suit Optional)Women’s days are for women and girls who were identified female at birth and for transwomen who live as women.
men: Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays (Bathing Suit Optional)Men’s days are for men and boys who were identified male at birth and for transmen who live as men.
All genders, including non-binary: Tuesdays (Bathing Suit Required)For our non-binary clients, you are welcome to come to the spa on Tuesdays, which is an all-gender day.


We do have a limited number of communal bathing reservations per day. If you have a communal bathing reservation, we do require that you arrive within the 15-minute grace period before or after your chosen start time. If you are not present, you will forfeit your appointment and your name will be put on the Wait List. A no show fee may apply. As with all reservations, a credit card is needed to guarantee your appointment.

Wait List

We may reach capacity, and a wait list for entry will be available at the front desk.  Though you must be present to put your name on our wait list and to receive a locker key, you will not lose your place if you leave our waiting area. While waiting for a locker to open, we encourage you to explore the many great shops, cafes, sushi bars, and the like in our surrounding Japantown neighborhood.
There is no time limit for bathing, therefore we cannot foresee when a locker will open up. The wait list for our communal baths is often longer on Tuesday nights, and all-day Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. To guarantee that you can enjoy the baths immediately upon your arrival, we suggest that you schedule a treatment in our spa. You can access the baths up to two hours before or for unlimited time after your service. We suggest arriving at least 30 minutes prior to your body treatment appointment to enjoy the baths.

Health Considerations

Visiting Kabuki Springs & Spa is a wonderful body-cleansing experience and can be enjoyed by most people. However, because we use heat to reach a state of relaxation, some clients should be aware of health issues. Those with low and high blood pressure can be negatively affected. High heat causes the capillaries in the skin to dilate, which in effect lowers blood pressure. When this happens, the heartbeat increases to keep blood pressure normal. Having a light meal prior to your visit is recommended to prevent any discomfort due to high heat. Pregnant women should seek the advice of their doctor prior to a spa visit. The use of drugs and/or alcohol prior to your spa visit is strongly discouraged. As our guests are using the baths to promote health, we recommend that the communal baths are not used when you are feeling under the weather.
