JapAneSE inNovaTiOn 1: sMart tOiLet

I’m in Osaka, Japan right now!!! Although having seen many many of Japanese weird things, there’s still a lots that never imagine before. I’ll share some of my experience here.

Japan has perhaps the most technologically advanced toilets in the world. The one featured above is the modern Japan toilet and is common in many hotels and newer buildings. Some of the features include:

– Heated seats – The little cord coming out of the wall hooks into the seat to provides electricity to heat it up.

– Adjustable Shower / Bidet – As seen in the picture their is a control panel on the toilet that allows the user to shoot water at their bottom for cleaning purposes. There is a little dial for adjusting the level of the water pressure and what looks like two settings, Shower and Bidet. The difference between these two settings is anyone’s guess, and only those brave enough to try it out will know for sure.

– Water adjustment – Adjustment of water pressure for shower and bidet.

Cool innovation!!

    The shower setting shoots water gently from the back of the seat acrross your bottom area. The Bidet button, when press, an arm comes out and shoots water upward onto your bottom area. I feel soo clean after using one of these. They had them on serveral hotels we stayed at. I saw them on sell at the duty free shop in Nirita. Tempted to purchase
