Below we have compiled a list of 16 types of Japanese stools. Even though when you think of a Japanese stool you have one style idea in mind there is a surprising wide variety of small to large variations in designs.
The following Japanese stools are not listed in any particular order of preference. They are just listed as I found them and would be more in alphabetically order more than anything else.
The 16 different Japanese stool styles include: Bath stools, counter stools, ceramic stools, collapsible stools, stool chairs, garden stools, kneeling stools, low stools, prayer stools, porcelain stools, step stools, shower stools, spa stools, vanity stools, wooden stools and washing stools.
While some of the different types of Japanese stools could cross over into various styles they are mostly unique variations of a Japanese stool…
