Ofuro bathtub

Japanese ofuro tubs were made as short, steep wooden tubs. They differ from traditional Western baths in that they have a deeper construction, typically in the 2 ft range. The sides are generally square rather than sloped, and traditionally such a bath has no overflow drainage. This Japanese classic gets a modern twist with Aquatica’s stunningly beautiful True Ofuro Japanese Seated Soaking Tub.

Handcrafted from American walnut, True Ofuro invigorates body and soul, as well as Japan’s revered bathing culture. The bathtub is designed for comfort: an integrated seat creates an ergonomic position for bathers and allows for full-body immersion – no cold spots, no awkward bending over trying to stay underwater, and perhaps best of all, no awkward resting heads up the bathtub has an ergonomic headrest instead.

There are also different types of wood: in addition to walnut, you can choose between maple, ash, padauk, oak or sapele. Aquatica also offers versions of the company’s patented AquateX material. This is a durable finish with a modern look that is stunning in its own right. And maybe even better, it’s cheaper than the wooden version. Colors available in AquateX include different variations of black, grey, brown, blue, green, red and yellow.
