Easy to use: Simply fill with hot water for a nice relaxing soak, then drain when finished.  Ofuros are designed as a soaking tub after a shower. Bath salts or bath oils can be used.  We do not recommend using this tub as a "shower tub". See our FAQ section for more...
The MOST comfortable tub:  The secret to a comfortable bath is deep water that almost floats your body. Zen Bathwork's Ofuros are deep enough to do just that.   Zen Bathworks Ofuros = deep, aromatic, luxurious comfort!

Our Expertise: Zen Bathworks is the leading builder of the ofuro bathtub.  We have developed a proprietary design that makes our ofuro completely user-friendly, superior to any other wooden ofuro on the market, and they are guaranteed!  Our highly skilled craftsmen build tubs one-at-a-time using a combination of traditional and modern techniques. Let us help you choose the perfect tub for your amazing bath. Click here to contact us.

Wood choice: This tub is most often made with Hinoki - the famous light-colored and aromatic cypress that is considered sacred for its beauty and strength. Hinoki has an amazing citrus/ginger aroma that fills your bath area with each use.  Other finish choices are Red Cedar, and Teak. All the wood we use is of the finest grade - vertical grained, quarter-sawn heartwood, properly dried and free of defects. More about our wood...

   ***ALL NEW OFFERING***: Hinoki/Teak Hybrid - Now enjoy the wonderful aroma of Hinoki with the durable beauty of Teak. Zen Bathworks, the leader of authentic handcrafted Japanese-style Ofuros is the first to bring you this innovation! No longer do you have to choose, but now you can get the best of both worlds!

Room Design: Our Ofuros can fit into a wide variety of typical bathroom designs.  We can size to fit your plan. 

Japanese Style Room Design: A Japanese bath is a Zen sanctuary with adjacent showering and soaking areas - open in design with a draining floor. The soaking tub is placed to enjoy a natural view if possible. The Japanese style of bathing begins with a thorough shower outside the tub using plenty of soap and hot water. The bather then slips into the crystal-clear, steaming hot water for a completely relaxing quiet soak.  For design ideas we recommend reading The Japanese Bath by Bruce Smith. 

Outdoor bathtubs:  Our ofuro can be installed as a beautiful and simple outdoor bath!  We recommend choosing either Red Cedar or Teak for outdoor tubs.

Drain: A tub bottom waste drain is included.  Check product options to see what drain finishes we stock. If you require a custom (not listed) finish, please inquire with us. Overflow drain systems are available as an option.  More about drains...

Easy to maintain: Our ofuro design really is simple to maintain.  Fill, soak, drain.  See our FAQ section for more...
