Japanese soaking baths are built small but deep.
These compact “ofuro” will fit in just about anywhere — even the smallest apartment.
Diamond Spa makes the baths pictured here. We’ve no idea on the price, but the concept is good. If anyone knows where to get this style of tub at a reasonable price please let us know.

I am trying to find out who makes that small bamboo ofuro above. I didn’t see it anywhere on Diamond Spa’s website. Can you help? Thanx
This isn’t the exact one in the picture above however there are some very similar ofuro in this website. I hope you find something to your liking.
There seems to be a US source for Japanese style tubs,but not as handsome as the ones pictured here.
T. Oki Trading carries three brands of ofuro — MTI Whirlpool, Americh, and Takagi. He says the Takagi Japanese Style Bath Tub is a hot-selling item.
“It’s a simple Japanese-made tub with a starting price of $785. It’s compact, lightweight and more than 25 inches deep, allowing a good, full-body soak … it’s made from FRP acrylic,” says Okimoto. Unlike the early ofuro, modern tubs are commonly made of synthetic materials such as acrylic, tile and stainless steel.
speaking of ofuro . . . any hints on m/e saunas?
