The wash toilet is the savior of civilization. Saves paper. Saves time in the toilet. Saves your ***.

Trouble is that a lot of JR stations and places of interest still have those hideous benjos. Wash toilets everywhere! Sit down and cheer.

Sounds like catching on in a way, if not, in the flush of enthusiasm. I mean toilets are must-have items after all.

I love the toilets here. In the restroom of a mall Germany, I saw something even better. Of course there were washlets, but after use, the seat would actually rotate through a wash cycle so every patron got a clean seat.

@mtuffizi Here's a link to Lonely Planet. Another thing is that it's 26/27 floors up and provides terrific views of Tokyo.

I wish Japan would have them butt rinsers in every public restroom.

I just wish Japan would have toilet seats in every public restroom.

I also wish other companies would innovate as much as the toilet companies, instead of just copying each other and making minor improvements.

Go visit their showroom in Shinjuku. As you walk by rows of toilet seats rise up as if they're saluting you. Makes you feel important.
