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...

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. We stock three popular drain finishes - Chrome, Brushed Nickel, and Oil-Rubbed Bronze. 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...
