The Ofuro Soaking Tub

The Ofuro
Soaking Tub

INSPIRED BY JAPANESE TRADITION

These cedar hot tubs originate from Japan, where bathing is not just a bath but rather a spiritual ritual.

The Ofuro bathing practice differs from North American and European bathtubs, where Ofuro bathtubs are 'Zen' like – providing a sensual pleasure, and a feeling of well-being and harmony with the natural surroundings like a garden or spiritual landscape. Japanese bathtubs help to restore mental and spiritual well-being by providing a private relaxation space, and they promote good health by stimulating circulation. The Ofuro Tub is deeper than our classic cedar hot tub, in order to provide a deep chin-down soak.

Built on tradition

Traditionally, Japanese soak in very hot water heated by means of a quiet non-electrical Wood Fired Hot Tub Heaters. The thick cedar construction of our Ofuro tubs help in maintaining the heat much longer than a regular tub. Our Ofuro Tubs are made of clear Western Red Cedar, which is a close cousin to the traditional cypress wood used in Japan. Red Cedar has the distinct advantage of being naturally resilient to decay and bacteria, and known for its high insulating value. The pleasant aromatherapy of cedar heightens the experience! Our tubs use an architectural stainless steel strap system which allows the tub to naturally expand and contract with out worrying about the wood splitting.

Bathing Practice

The Japanese Soaking Tub bath meant much more that just getting oneself clean. After shedding one's clothes and daily concerns, they then lathered, scrubbed, and rinsed thoroughly before entering the tub. Once the body was clean, they then stepped into the Tub sinking slowly into the deep, pure, and clean hot water. Soaking, submerged to the chin, it is a time for relaxation and contemplation. Soaps and shampoos are not typically used although mineral salts and light fragrant oils are often added.

Fully assembled –
install inside & out!

All cedar ofuro tubs come fully assembled with a standard center positioned stainless steel drain that connects to any 1 1/2" PVC drainpipe (other positions available on request). Optional accessories include matching stairs, shelf, back rests, and insulated covers with child -proof locks.

Japanese soaking tubs can also be installed indoors. However, because there is no liner, we suggest proper tiled floor drains, or a shower basin be installed. Most people like their Japanese baths very hot so one should also consider proper ventilation. Garden or deck hot tubs settings require very little consideration other than heating method.

“We love our Northern Lights Cedar Hot Tub!”

We've had our tub going steady for about 1-1/2 years and nothing stops us from using it every day. All our visitors who soak remind us that it's the best soaking tub in the city. Thank You for a wonderful tubbing experience!

“I am one happy customer!”

I ordered your Hot Tub Kit and was skeptical as to my ability to assemble it. However you were correct about even the "not so handy" being able to assemble it. The instructions were very well written, and I was up and running over the weekend.

“I’m just blown away by the quality of the tub.”

The cedar staves, the shape, finish and thought that you’ve put into everything is simply outstanding. Well done guys. I’m telling all my friends where to find you.

“We love our tub. It is our get-away haven.”

I have owned an acrylic spa before and I can honestly say that the experience and enjoyment is not the same as our new Northern Light Cedar Hot Tub. Our family of 4 is in it religiously every day. Keep up the good work!
