Experience the magic of onsen from home!
These hot spring baths of volcanic origin, established as a true way of life in Japan, are sources of well-being and relaxation, both for body and mind. What if the onsen really came to your bathroom?
The Japanese hot spring bath: a hedonistic pleasure
The Japanese thermal bath is an ancient tradition. Many myths and legends have their origins in the onsen, which had their own deities, the kami.
The onsen – a word that designates both the source, the place and the bath itself – are located in the countless spa towns of the Japanese archipelago, in the mountains. Volcanic springs renowned for their therapeutic properties because they are rich in mineral salts. Very popular with Japanese people, we usually meet there with friends, family and sometimes even with colleagues. We share a moment of absolute relaxation away from the hustle and bustle of the city, and we can socialize there...in silence. Finally, we go in naked, and...clean.
Japanese bathtubs: the Japanese art of living at home
Established in 2020, Japan WC is a young company that allows us to have this experience from our bathroom. With these handmade Japanese bathtubs – called ofuro and which the Japanese use themselves – you can recreate the world of onsen at home. and experience an exceptional moment of relaxation.
Count on the delicious and typical smell of cedar wood – a material that retains heat longer and with which the bathtubs are made – to transport you directly to the heights of the Japanese peaks.
To complete the experience, why not enhance the water with Lemon Eucalyptus or Rosemary essential oils, which are ideal against rheumatism, or even Juniper essential oils to eliminate toxins?
Sitting on a buttocks rest provided for this purpose, just close your eyes and relax...Mount Fuji is only a few kilometers away.
Several looks and sizes of baths are available to suit all tastes, budgets and bathroom sizes: round baths of 150, 120 or 100 cm in diameter or classic-shaped baths. And if you only have a limited space, Japan WC also offers a round acrylic bathtub, thus clearing a place of choice like a shower in a bathroom.
