    No doubt soaking is therapeutic, but the prices of mosts tubs are outrageous! It’s just meant to hold some hot water, for goodness sake.

    Fortunately you can use a stock tank, which is just a big, plastic tub used to water livestock. A 2’x2’x5′ is under $200.00 at my local feed store.

    You can make a wooden ofuro out of old pine table tops cut and screwed together, sealed with caulk and waterproofed with hot tub sealant.

    A Note About Pricing:

    As could be expected from items that are hand crafted in Japan, they are not cheap.The wash basins list prices range from $750 to $1600.And the soaking tubs prices start at just under $10,000 and increase based on the size.Please contact us or your local showroom for specific pricing.

    These Japanese Tubs are amazing, but in the end it’s more of a design feature and an art piece in your bathroom than just a regular bathtub. And you can bet that the price for one of their tubs is going to be outrageous! But then again you are paying for a hand crafted art piece. Japanese soaking tubs made from the traditional wood would definitely be an cheaper option!
