testing the tub
This is the photo of the tub we shipped to Vancouver being installed.
For me being used to cramped japanese residences with small rooms and “virtual” gardens it is always a nice surprise to see the generosity of space of an american home…
Also it is always a fresh surprise for me to see the same tub that I saw last month in the hands of our carpenter Wada-san while he was drinking tea… The tub is now in a completely different reality, surrounded by smiling westerner`s faces…
There is maybe a positive side to globalization, where people living 10000 miles away from Japan can put in our homes a real Japanese bathtub, made by hand by an experienced (and sometimes a little grumpy) japanese craftsman!

I’m renovating my newly purchased house in North Vancouver. As Japanese native, left japan 30 years ago, I’d be ecstatic to install a beautiful Hinoki-buro in my house. I’ll be forwarding your website to my design team, Synthesis Design in North Vancouver, so expect to hear from them.
Look forward to soaking in soon.
