November Guide Sign

Now is the time to enjoy autumn colors in Japan.

There are many famous spots in this country where you can appreciate their beauty.

When you are in Japan, there is no need to worry about security and toilets as well.

The public toilets here are commonly clean. They are found in many places, used free, equipped with warm seats.

In Japan, cleanliness is very important, and the Japanese word kirei for ‘clean’ can be also used to describe “pretty: beautiful ”

This may explain the success of the high-tech toilet which is well known as Washlet nationwide.

They are electronic western style toilets with various functions such as seat warming, washing bottom, bidet, and drying.

With newer electronic toilets, the lid opens automatically when people come in and water automatically flushes

when they are done and the lid closes people stand up.

The Washlet is the product name of electronic toilets,

however it is used as a general name of electronic toilets in Japan.

It is an absolute necessity in Japan’s household nowadays.

In the past the Japanese used traditional squat-type toilets.

Inspired by imported bidets from Western countries for a medical purpose,

a Japanese maker developed western type toilets with heated seats and a warm water wash.

The age of the high-tech toilet in Japan started in 1980, since then the toilet has been widespread.

The idea of the high-tech toilets is to transform the bathroom into a place of relaxation, comfort and cleanliness.

However it would take some time for foreigners to get used to the idea of the Washlet.

Behind this is that Japanese bathrooms are constructed very differently from their western counterparts.

Namely, the bathtub are usually separated  from the toilet.

A Japanese washroom can have an electrical outlet behind the toilet,

while high current electrical outlets installed in bathrooms are prohibited in many western countries due to a safety reason

At first the Washlet may be regarded as a curiosity by non-Japanese users,

but after all they would agree that the toilet is essential to life, so it should be comfortable and clean.
