As a long time sufferer of hemorrhoids, bidets are a god-send (especially compared to the dry & irritating paper alternative). Since living in Japan, i've never looked back, and when overseas always grateful when i remember to carry wet wipes.
Based on a helpful poll I saw in the https://rhoidrage.select.id/ community, theres unanimous conviction it's greatly net-positive.
I sympathize for Sixty-five-year-old Yuji Kawata, but if he started using a washlet due to hemorrhoids, then the latter is almost certainly responsible for the bleeding, not the washlet. After all, how can you overuse a bidet without also overusing (sitting for a long time & likely straining) the toilet?
Consider your hands & face - It simply doesn't make any common sense that cleaning with warm water would be worse than the unsanitary practice of wiping with dry paper.
