Real Japanese Hiba Wood Bath 'Isu' Stool & Hinoki Wood 'Oke' Basin Set

HAND-MADE OF NATURAL WOOD IN GIFU PREFECTURE...
This is a set: the stool has a special shelf for proper drying and storage of the basin. (Note: never dry them in direct sunlight!)
The perfect set for home spas!

• Made completely in the traditional way, this high quality set is made of the finest, fragrant Japanese wood. The 'Oke' basin is made of Hinoki Cypress Wood and the 'Isu' stool from water-resistant Hiba Wood.

• Stool: Hiba Wood - 35 X 20 X 30 (14" X 8" X 12" Tall) It is MUCH larger than the standard ones and is comfortable to sit on...
• Basin: Hinoki Wood - 22.5 X 11.5 ( 9" across X 4⅔" deep) with real copper bands.

In a traditional Japanese bath, the stool is used to sit on while washing outside the bath tub and the basin to pour water over yourself as you wash. These are hand-made for us in the picturesque Gifu Prefecture, which is famous for the production of natural wooden bath goods.

Hinoki and Hiba are water and rot resistant and give off the most wonderful fragrance when wet. The oils in the sap are said to be excellent for the skin. Traditionally, hinoki was used to make the bath tub itself but these are considered an extravagant luxury now as they are extremely expensive.

These solid wooden stools and hand-made basins are of the exact same type used at many fine Hot Spring 'Onsen' resorts all over Japan but are a much larger size. Beautifully made by expert craftsmen, they will last for many years. Perfect to bring the essence of the Japanese Bath into your home!
