Japanese soaking tubs are unique because they tend to be smaller in size but the overflow is drilled higher so you get more water depth. This allows you to not only be able to save space, but you also save on water as well while still having the ability to totally immerse your body in bathing water. These tubs are called Japanese because, well, their origins come from Japan where living quarters are smaller so these tubs were really designed out of necessity. They have since become popular here in America as a water saving or spacing saving option. You can buy these extra deep tubs in a drop in or free standing in acrylic, composite, and even copper. These tubs can be purchased as a soaker tub (with no jets) as well as a whirlpool or air tub. Of course we discount our tubs so you can expect some of the best prices online.
