A Bathtub (バスタブ Basu tabu) informally referred to as a Tub for short, is a container or area that holds a body of liquid that is used to take a Bath in. Bathtubs come in many different sizes, forms and shapes depending on the resources and place of origin.
List of BathtubsEdit
- Main article: Takagi Bathtub
A Takagi Bathtub is the most common bathtub found in Japanese Ofuros in modern households. Though takagi bathtubs aren't wide and have a square shape, they are deep and can comfortably fit one person at a time. They are used for the sole purpose of soaking as they are designed to be used for Furos. Takagi bathtubs have a lid that slide onto the bathtub that keeps the heat of the bathwater in so it can be reused again for a later bath.
- Main article: Hinoki Bathtub
Hinoki Bathtub is a Japanese styled Bathtub that is made out of wood. Water is usually drawn into a hinoki bathtub from a small stream that continually runs into the bathtub. It usually plays the same role as a Takagi Bathtub but made out of wood and can often be even bigger than one even to the point of being the size of a Bathing Pool.
- Main article: Goemonburo
A Goemonburo is a type of Japanese bathtub that has a design similar to an iron kettle with edges to the sides. It is heated from a small furnace at the bottom. A Barrel bath is an informal improvisation of this type of bathtub. It is named after the famous thief Ishikawa Goemon who was killed by being boiled alive in a cauldron.
- Main article: Clawfoot Bathtub
A Clawfoot Bathtub is a classic style bathtub which originated in the late 1800s. It commonly has four legs on the bottom keeping it up and is usually deeper than most bathtubs. They are commonly seen in more rich and wealthy environments or in Western European influenced settings. The most basic design is with one flat end and one rounded end but has another one known as the double sided which has two rounded ends. Clawfoot Bathtubs have other altered designs such as the Slipper Bathtub and the Freestanding Bathtub.
- Main article: Freestanding Bathtub
A Freestanding Bathtub or Non-Clawfoot Bathtub is a bathtub that has the same shape as a basic clawfoot bathtub but doesn't have claw feet on the bottom or any other form of legs keeping the tub elevated off the ground and is not attached to the ground.
- Main article: Slipper Bathtub
Slipper Bathtub is a model of Clawfoot Bathtub that has one end raised and sloped to create a more comfortable lounging position for the bather to lay in. The look seems very classy and appealing for a bathtub and usually likes to be a sign of elegance. A Double Slipper Bathtub is a design where both ends are raised and sloped.
