Could I purchase just a drain plug from you? Not a spherical but a standard long type with 1 1/2″ thread. If I cannot purchase one directly from you, can you please direct me to a site where I can purchase one. I know your time is very valuable. Your help will be greatly appreciated. I am considering purchasing one of your tubs. I love them. I grew up in Japan in Sasebo and now reside in Anchorage, Alaska. I love to build things with my hands but the craftsmanship of your tubs is something I cannot touch. I am considering building one from GFRC concrete but need a high quality drain. If I decide to abort my project I will end up simply purchasing one of your tubs. I know nothing compares to a hinoki tub. It’s a matter of cost and the fact that I would have the joy of building it myself. But in the end, it is about the time one spends in the tub and how relaxing and meditative it is. Your tubs are an investment in peace of mind and serenity. This, I will have to weigh before I start my project. But in the meantime I need to get availability of my materials together. I though that you would not compromise on the quality of the drain so who better to ask. Again, thank you for your time. Best regards, Ron Teekell

Hello, I was looking around for this spherical drain plug in Japan for a couple of times. I had seen it in hotel (big plug for hotel room private ofuro and small plug for tub) but never in Tokyu Hands and Cainz or like. I would like to order one for the tub at home. Please advise what I should do to determine size and the next step. Thanks very much.
hinoki2019年7月2日 at 7:18 AM
The diameter of the ball is 43.5mm and it fits a 40mm drain socket.

Could you please let me know if your sink spherical plugs are distributed in Australia? I am keen to try one in an application at work.
