Amazing Toilets

I have to say that Japan has some kick ass toilets. They do everything but the dishes these days and we could really use some like these in the States.

I meant to blog about this before but didn't get a chance and thought that I better get it up there before I forgot again. This toilet is one I used in a public restroom in a nice hotel that we were attending a Japanese wedding and reception at. I loved that there were English instructions as well.

Now the toilet itself was just like a ton of others I have seen here....a lot of nice places pay the extra money for their toilets so they all the bells and whistles...okay, maybe not whistles but you can have a 20 second flushing sound, which I am assuming is to hide any other sounds the user might be making themselves.

You can find ones here that have sprayers (for front and back), warmers (for the seat) and that even put the seat up and down automatically. I don't know if they have ones that dry your bum too but I wouldn't be surprised at all if they do. All toilets here have the option for a big flush or a small flush depending on necessity at the moment.

So I thought I would post a picture of a cool Japanese toilet with its instructions so you could just see how awesome they are for yourself. I wish I could have one back home in the States but my understanding is that they are VERY expensive...

Wow, WOW and WOW--what will they think of next?? Sure wouldn't mind that bum warmer sometimes. R says he used one of those at Mammoth Lakes a few years ago--where it was 30 degrees while camping!

Warm toilets rock....courtesy flushing sounds are not bad either...

I love the idea of courtesy flushing sounds- genius!

Then you can let go without having to worry about anyone hearing you....so polite, I say...but then the Japanese are known for their politeness so it makes tons of sense...

I like the fact that you can adjust the flush flow - what a great way to save water!
