Ofuro? What is that?

An ofuro is a traditional Japanese bathtub of hot water. Currently in Japan, the ofuro is not used for personal hygiene, but to relax after a hard day’s work and for relaxing and therapeutic purposes.

Although its origins go back more than 5,000 years of age, the Egyptians already used them for therapeutic purposes. In the Greco-Roman, culture, Fraortes, King of Media, had its own tub in its chambers already in the year 600 a. C.

We could say that the ofuro is the ancestor of the spa.

Ofuro can be made of wood, stone or molten iron. In our case, it is made of cedar wood; Which gives it a pleasant fragance that makes the bathroom even more special.

How is it used?

The old (and some modern) were heated with a wood-burning stove integrated into the lower part of its structure. The modern ones can be heated with the heating of the house (diesel, biomass, solar panels, etc.)

When many people use it, the rule indicates that you have to shower properly before using the ofuro, since its water is to be used by all members of the family and / or group. The same thing we do when we go to the public swimming pools.

In addition, they have a cover to keep the water warm. It can even be used in winter.

It is also a fun time for the little ones of the house, but the ofuro have to be used in the company of an adult.
