Japan! The name itself leaves an exotic taste in your mouth.

Japan is the symbol of the Eastern society, while America is the symbol of Western society. Name itself is a symbol of another lifestyle: calm, concise, efficient, these are the words that describe the culture’s mystery.

This country has been a part of my professional life many times. I have visited it for business and pleasure. This country continues to amaze me to this day. But it was the Japanese toilets which attracted my attention.

The bathroom is spotless everywhere I go. I could drink straight from the bowl. The cleanliness is not the only thing that amazes. I also love the bidet toilet (or washlet, as Japanese would call it). My little friend has an amazing journey thanks to these punk-style panels.

Japanese toilets are a unique industry item. Their dedication and renovation surpasses all languages and cultures. Even American Standard treats them with respect.

Types Of Japanese Toilets

1. Toilet In A Squat

You are so rich! What? You’re right. This piece of porcelain was the first time I saw it. What is the point of putting an urinal upside-down in a bathroom?

According to Japanese people (and other Asians), they squat when dealing with shit. Even the signs on the wall will remind you to move closer, but with a terrible grammar.

« No more chicken legs » – Shinz Abe

Although some might argue that this type of toilet is more convenient and more clean, many studies have shown that the toilet seat doesn’t play a significant role in hygiene. This is why I don’t see the value of installing a squat-type toilet when you can spend around €600 to buy a new one.

They could just make a hole in ground.

2. Bidet Toilet

Over half of Japanese homes installed bidet toilets in 2002.

Also known as washlet, bidites can also be called washlet. This is the best thing about Japanese toilets. While I can now spot some bidets toilets, most toilets in the US are still functional toilets.

I would like to have my butt washed.

People should be able to hold signs such as « Give me a bidet Toilet » on the streets. They are so much better than toilets.

Let’s wait a moment. What makes a bidet toilet so great?

Basic Functions

Bidets clean your anal by directing water up it. The best thing about the bidets’ is their ability to find the ideal water temperature for humans. Every time you use a bidet to flush, you are treated to a delicious movable feast.

The heated water stream is not the only feature. There is also a heated seat. Temperature can be adjusted between 30C and 40C. Unfortunately, this function is not something I enjoy because it makes me feel like I’m on a furry animal.

Crazy Functions

TOTO introduced a new function to its bidet toilet in 2005. It was …. a singing toilet. Geeze! Who thought a bidet could play MP3 files? What should I listen? Uh.

The massage function is another thing. It literally sprays water on your sore muscles to massage them. After a hard labor, I’m sure you’ll need this first-class treatment.

The Sound Princess (Otohime).

This was the first time I saw this online. The device flushes large amounts of water ahead of time to mask the sound of bodily functions. Although Japanese pride themselves on their cleanliness, it seems that they are so proud of their dumping. It’s absurd to so many levels. It is primarily used in public bathrooms for women, so I haven’t personally tried it. I am certain that I will laugh out loud while listening to the water streaming.

Honorable Mention – TOTO

TOTO is a hardworking gentleman who comes to mind when I think of Japanese toilets. Many people in the industry give credit to TOTO for making bidet a reality. We may not see such a revolution without his tireless work in the toilet industry. TOTO introduced the high-tech toilet Washlet in 1980. Since then, TOTO has sat on the throne for bidet toilets.
