Japanese toilet ... Someone had to show it!

Japanese toilet ... Someone had to show it!

Makuhari Messe, Japan

No, this isn't the toilet facility on-board the Space Shuttle or in some prison facility. It is a Japanese toilet in the "handicapped" rest room (and we must say Japan's facilities of all types for the physically- and sight-challenged have improved tremendously over the years, and we've been going there since 1979). Note the electronic controls on the right side of the seat, where the user can choose from a variety of hot, warm or cold wet washes aimed at various body parts, cool or hot drying air blown into the seating area and the level of heat for the seat itself. In our new home, we will have ONLY these Japan-style toilets (which are available in the US, too)!
