Experience with Japanese style soaking tub?

OyinDecember 3, 2012

Hello!

I'm very interested in a Ofuro-inspired tub (but not a true Ofuro with the overflow and what not).

Has anyone had one? How do you like it long-term? I'm considering the Victoria and Albert Sorrento in the picture for our small master bathroom.

We have an Ann Sack's Onzen Tub - now called something else. We do love it, but haven't used very often (in house 6 years now). Scroll down about half way for picture - ours has jets, but we did not get inline heater. Haven't needed, as we insulated well before setting and the water stays warm.

Here is a link that might be useful: Onzen Tub

We have the Sorrento and love it. It holds heat beautifully and the material feels really nice. It's super solid. I will say it takes a ton of water to fill it, so make sure you have an on-demand heater or something like that.
