Ofuro Soaking Tubs have been used by the Japanese for centuries to alleviate both physical and spiritual maladies.

Western and European cultures view bathing as a way to clean the body, but the Japanese see bathing or soaking in hot water as more of a spiritual ritual that cleanses, rejuvenates and heals the mind, body and spirit.

This ancient technique of total immersion in hot water takes away tension, stress, soothes muscular pains and stimulates blood circulation.

Our Ofuro Soaking Tubs are custom crafted using the same quality, shapes, detail, and styling of traditional Japanese soaking tubs. Traditional Ofuros come in a wide variety of sizes and depths but only two shapes; square or rectangular. Our master craftsman began as a woodworking apprentice in Japan many years ago and we have been perfecting our own style of Ofuro Soaking Tub since 1976.

Please Note: Ofuro Tubs ordered online DO NOT come with any benches, include one sloped side, and have the drain centered by default.

Product Description

The health benefits of this oriental soaking tradition, along with its ability to increase the quality of one’s life and well being, hasn’t gone unnoticed and consumer demand in Western Cultures for Ofuro Soaking Tubs has grown exponentially over the last twenty years.

Our Ofuro Soaking Tubs are custom crafted using the same quality, attention to detail, shapes and styling of traditional Japanese soaking tubs.  Traditional Ofuro Tubs come in a wide variety of sizes and depths, but only two shapes; square or rectangular.

  1. Soaking, Not Bathing– Ofuro Tubs are meant for soaking, relaxation and rejuvenation, not bathing. We strongly recommend not using soaps and shampoos as doing so will undesirably stain the wood.
  2. Tub/Water Depth– The average water/tub depth in Western bathtubs is approximately 12″ and you can’t realistically submerge your entire body in hot water even when lying down. The average inside depth of our Ofuro Soaking Tubs is 26″ – 28″ and we can easily adjust the inside depth up or down depending on your specifications.
  3. No Overflow – Unlike our bathtubs, Ofuro Soaking Tubs do not have an overflow. Ofuros are designed to overflow over the top of the tub and onto the floor. Not having an overflow allows the tub to be much deeper, but it requires that the floor underneath the Ofuro be completely waterproofed with a central floor drain installed.

In addition, traditional Ofuro tubs are typically drained onto the floor, although you can plumb it to drain into a standard drain pipe.

Soaking Tubs are traditionally very small, don’t have air jets or massage features and accommodate just one person. These tubs are filled with hot water and then emptied at the end of the evening.

The tub can be kept empty for extended periods unlike traditional tubs because it is made with plywood.  The wood that you see on the outside is a very thick 1/8" veneer.  The other benefit to this is that the tub will never leak.  Because the capacity of the tub is a bit higher than regular ones, you will need a tankless water heater to get enough water in the tub.
