One of my favoritest things ever about Japan is the Japanese bath. The idea is that you’ve got a whole room that’s tiled like a shower but it also has a bathtub in it. You wash yourself outside the tub and once you’re clean, you soak in the hot bath. It’s incredibly relaxing and combines the best aspects of a shower and a bath.
It’s always been our dream to have one so when we bought our house and had a chance to build out a basement, an ofuro room was the first thing I designed in the plans. Five years later, it’s finally ready!
