A Japanese soaking bathtub is the perfect option when looking to ease our mind and body. This type of bathtub was designed to allow a total immersion of the bather’s body. It has been built after a traditional Japanese bathtub design and allows the bather to completely cover his entire body in water, thus allowing for a better blood circulation and muscle relaxation. However, such baths are not for people who are on a too tight budget because even the simplest model of Japanese soaking bathtub is likely to cost several thousands dollars.

Lids and thermostats can also be added in order to get the wanted temperature level and keep your bath water warm for later use.
