Japanese Cedar Soaking Tubs
Our Japanese inspired soaking tubs are constructed of beautiful clear vertical grain western red cedar.
Whether in a bathroom or outside under the stars, these tubs smell great and will leave you feeling relaxed.
Our smaller one person oval soaker tub makes for an excellent ice bath, or for places where water is at a premium.
The larger 2-person soaking tub, is around 120 gallons to ideal soaking height.
Both tub sizes pair great with electric heat, or an external Chofu wood stove heater.
*If our tubs are to be used indoors, a wet area with a tiled or concrete floor with a drain or shower pan is necessary. The tubs also require ventilation for any steam that builds up. Outdoor installation on a deck or patio requires no extra consideration for spilling water.
