Sawara Furo Oke with Handle
Hand made from Sawara cypress wood, bounded by two copper bands, these 'furo oke' are used to pour hot water from the bath over one self and also to rinse out your wash towel as you scrub. The cypress wood commonly used for these bath basins are known to be waterproof and are resistant to rot. They also give off a very nice fragrance when wet. The oils in the sap are said to be excellent for the skin. These solid wooden basins are used at many fine hot spring resorts all over Japan.
