Bathtub a multimedia hub

You know that Japanese love their toilet time judging by the types of toilet seats they come up with, while Koreans are crazy about integrating multimedia capability in virtually every piece of furniture as seen by the Bazen AT-956TV Bathtub. This unique bathtub comes with a digital thermostat and all the other trappings of a normal jacuzzi, with the geeky additions of an LCD display, an integrated DVD player, and a TV tuner for you to soak in the latest soap operas and movies while taking a relaxing bath. The controls are located along the tub's edges and are presumably waterproof. Koreans will be able to pick up the luxurious Bazen AT-956TV for approximately $5,200.

And a warm welcome to....

and apologies to everyone for not posting more. I've been trying to avoid cross posting from my own journal so that you don't see the same thing twice and in doing so have really been neglecting this group.

as penance I'll try and do a month of spas! Feel free to join in with anything that you would like, it doesn't have to be a spa, even just a clever idea or a funny sign you saw in someplace that gets you in water. Solid, liquid, or gas!

Don't get mad...
...After all, this is "bathtubs AND MORE!"

The owners of this house found a strong electrical current adjacent to this bathtub, and so elected not to bathe in it.

So it became an office.

I didn't get pictures of the bath they use, but it's enormous, too. Jealous? I am!

Bathtub + Hammock = Awesome

Love to curl-up in your hammock in those lazy days, but, of-late can’t find enough time to do so, then this hammock-styled bathtub is just for you! Doesn’t seems like a bathtub at first glance, but it is actually one! The floating concept is made of polyurethane and steel. But, don’t worry it is not hard and rigid, but, soft and bendable. It’s soft polyurethane shell deforms to accommodate the contours of the body. The suspended hammock-tub is held by a tension ring suspended between two stainless steel poles, that also takes care of the water-supply and has even extended space for keeping your towel, soaps and oils!

Russian Bath or Sauna
As a rule Russian bath is build of logs stacked against each other, gaps between which were calked with moss. Initially baths were heated "in a black way", that is an oven was established directly in a steam room and the smoke left directly into the room.

$1 Million Solid Gold Bathtub Missing!
Golden bathtub worth 120 million yen stolen from hotel
A golden bathtub worth about 120 million yen has been stolen from a hotel here, police said.

At around 9:20 a.m. on Wednesday, police received an emergency call from an employee of Kominato Hotel Mikazuki in the Uchiura district of Kamogawa, reporting that a golden bathtub had been stolen from the men's bathroom.

Officers examined the bathroom and found the chain that fixed the bathtub had been cut off. Investigators suspect that the bathtub was removed sometime between 2 a.m. and 9 a.m.

The bathtub, made of pure gold, measures 71 centimeters wide, 121 centimeters long and 65 centimeters high and weighs some 80 kilograms. It is estimated to be worth approximately 120 million yen at current market values.

Sento at sixth and Main

The Only remaining Japanese Public bathhouse intact in the U.S.

At the base of the Panama Hotel is the entrance to what was once the center of daily life in Nihonmachi, Japantown, one of the most thriving communities of its kind in the country. Of hundreds of such communal bathhouses in Japantowns across the country, this is the only one preserved in tact, in place. The bathhouse served generations of  Nesei (Japanese Americans) in the years before World War II. After work, after school, after dinner, after ball games immigrants came to soak at the Sento because life was hard, hot water was relaxing, bathing facilities were scarce and it was a traditional cultural activity.

The two pitted marble baths are still in the basement, along with rusty shower heads (that nobody used, even then), neatly numbered wooden lockers and hand painted signs advertising local businesses perfectly preserved.
