We just received the beautiful pictures and kind comment of a client from the West Coast:


Happy New Year! I hope that all is going well for you in Japan.
Here are a few photos of our hinoki tub installed. It is a joy to use!!! Now you need to make a journey to this part of the world to see it in person!
Thank you so much to you, Wada-san, and anyone else who assisted in making or getting it ready to ship. It was a long journey to get it in place and I am very happy we did it.

This time we had the pleasure to deal with an indian gentlemen, japan-lover and japanese sword collector.
This shipment consisted in an Asnaro wood tub AB grade L1370mm x W840mm x H660mm.
We supplied the drain fitting: the client will drill a hole and mount it on site to match exact site conditions.
The tub has a copper apron, wood dowels and the Bartok design Iron brand at front side top-right
Bathroom accessories include Asnaro large bucket, Asnaro ladle with handle and Asnaro-Hiba Oil.

We also supplied a copper rainchain adjusting the length from 2700mm to 3250mm (option).
Then the client choose some fusuma paper designs.

It is really exciting to work side by side with our clients thousands of miles away!

Hot tub for New Zealand

I think that the words of my client are more clear and evocative than any any detailed description I could make:

(…) Thank you for the photographs. It really looks a beautiful work that will give us wonderful moments for a long, long time. My house is on the top of a hill, overlooking a valley and the sunset. I am planting a face of the mountain with oaks, and I will be able to enjoy the view from the bath, as I did in my trips to onsen in Japan.
The water comes from a nearby stream and collected rain water . I am sure it will be a pleasure for all of us to enjoy your wonderfully crafted tub.(…)

Hinoki wood tub AB grade (quarter sawn) w/ overflow top cut
Dimensions are: L1400mm x W900mm x H680mm (ext. dim.) 600mm (deep) .
The bottom of the tub is treated with natural oil and the joints are finished with dowel heads.

The tub has a top overflow cut and is equipped with a water spout.
The client is considering the option of using a tub cover to keep the water warm for a longer period. In this case we recommend to mount the spout on a wall near the tub (and not on the side edge of the tub itself) to allow room to slide the cover underneath.

To cope with the overflow, we can provide a block of wood which perfectly matches the cut!

Dimensions are: L1600mm x W900mm x H690mm (ext. dim.) 604mm (deep)

Imagine a dojo, a martial arts club in a quiet Paris suburb. Imagine the pleasure of entering in an aromatic hot tub after a tought training…

As you know, martial arts principles give great importance to cleaning: both in a literal and symbolic sense. More than cultivating physical strenght, martial arts are a “way” to find a perfectly balanced inner self, to higher ethics and to the appreciation of authentical
things…

This tub has two confronting removable benches and is suitable for up to 4 people.
