That's a nice granite tub you have. I think the idea of sharing bath water (despite being clean) is not something that will catch on quickly in the U.S.

If Japanese bathing caught on in America, each person would use their own water and the tubs would be smaller (to save water and people would bathe alone).

Cleaning before entering the bath is good though, much better than soaking in dirty water.

But aren't hot tubs popular in the US? It's sort of like a hot tub.

Hot tubs are different, because you're usually wearing a bathing suit, and the water is chlorinated, so you'll have to wash off afterwards. The water stays in the tub 24/7. Before you go in, you should rinse off with a hose, but people skip that step.

Both are similar because you relax in them and they stay warm all the time. Whirlpools are closer to Japanese baths because of their size (similar). They're like a combination hot tub and bath tub. I'll put a pic of our whirlpool on my blog.

Please tell me.
Did someone install the Matsushita HE-RQC2W in America?
If so, how may I contact them.
Currently, I've only been able to find Rinnai hot water on demand products.
Yet, I am looking for the old, fashioned Japanese gas water heater that sits alongside the bath and has an intake valve at the bottom through which water circulates, gets heated by gas and then released through an output valve at the top of the tub.
It's difficult to describe, but those of you who have lived in Japan for a while will know what I am talking about.

Hi
Just to echo Jessica and Marcus, we are interested in the heat pump but can't find it online.
Where can we get one?
Thanks

In case you cannot find an authentic Japanese style soaking tub in the U.S., you might consider making your own from a plastic tank.

These plastic tanks come in many sizes and they are available from manufacturers across the country. All you need to do to make them into a tub is drill a hole in the bottom and install a standard tub drain fitting with a stopper.

I have a long body so I bought one that is 30 inches in depth and the extra high water level allows me to soak submerged up to my neck.

If you like to bath with a partner, just get a tank that will accomodate two persons.

I also have a "bidet" for hygenic cleaning so I can add bubble bath and hop right into the tub for a soak without contaminating the water. Then I just use the shower to rinse off after the bath. The bath is also very energy efficient in cold weather because the heat in the water is just transferred into the room.

If you are looking for a pleasurable and very economical method of relaxation, just get into Japanese bathing.

Cheers -

We want to put a Japanese style bath in our American house. I need help finding suppliers of water heater and the tub. I noticed the "Matsushita HE-RQC2W heat pump" mentioned above. Was that bought in the states? Thanks.

Ugg boots typically has a unique glimpse from other kinds of boots. It is in fact this distinctive glimpse that makes it stand out inside the crowd. The expression ugg is truly the shot for ugly. Thus ugg boot in simple fact meant unsightly boot. But these days these boots are no longer deemed as unpleasant, they are moreover thought of as one with the most fashionable and snug footwear from the style industry. Just imagine walking miles on an undulated terrain in a pair of higher heels! What would be the result?

I do not like a lot of people to wash in the same tank, I feel so unhealthy, it will cause pollution, the risk of infectious diseases will occur, I think so, though looks like a very interesting, but not so large cylinder The.

The best part is that the heat pump takes care of filling the bath with hot water and also circulates the water in the bath and maintains the temperature as you like. Technology makes our lives so much more easier!
