Hot Tubs

We have modeled our bathing experience after the great hot spring onsen of Japan. There are two public hot tubs with sauna and cold plunge--one for mixed bathing and one for women only. Simple private wooden outdoor tubs with a shared cold plunge are available for just you and your guests. Hot tub water is maintained at 104-106 degrees F., cold plunges are around 55 degrees F.

More luxurious are the premium hot tubs which have saunas and other amenities. For the ultimate experience, try one of our spa suites--tubs, saunas, cooling berths, and your own private changing room and showers.

We can reduce the temperature in Shoji to 99 degrees if a reservation is made in advance.


'I received a gift certificate for a private hot tub -- it was the most wonderful experience in my whole life. We were surrounded by snow and it was late one evening and the we could see the moon and the stars. I'm recommending Ten Thousand Waves to all my friends. I also had a massage and it was heaven.'

'I've been going to Ten Thousand Waves since I was six months old. Ten Thousand Waves will have me returning for the rest of my life. Thank you for such excellent service.'

'Your beautiful facility totally met, and far exceeded, my expectations. Everything was just perfect. I simply did not want to leave such a magical haven. AHHHHH... Warmly, Beth E. Baker Richland Center (Southwest Wisconsin)'
