Notes on Japan: the WC

Japan is the ideal country for meonas like me. The truth is that you find bathrooms everywhere, even in subway stations and temples and are almost always clean. Of course, the first thing that surprises you when you enter a WC is to see the toilet bowl. They can be found in two types: Western and Japanese.

The Japanese-style one is a toilet bowl encased on the floor. It's a bit awkward to use for that whenever I could used to get into the western-style ones. Western style in some places I found as what they usually see in Spain, but usually in many places there was a built-in bidet or also called "chorritos". In almost all hotel houses and rooms this is the type of toilet that usually exists. The cup has an adjustable heater that makes when you feel this warm. Some have a button with a musical note, that when you press it, music comes out so they don't hear you piss (a mania of the Japanese). Then there is a button that when pressed presses a water jet (of adjustable power) to clean the bass. Some also have a sting on top of the cistern with what you can use to wash your hands with the water that fills the tank. Another thing that caught my attention is that in some toilets of public places to pull the chain you had to run your hand through a sensor (without touching) and it did it automatically, truly hygienic.

The truth is that I think this type of toilet would have to become fashionable in Spanish homes. Some time ago I saw that they were sold in a store in Ronda Sant Antoni, but it seems to me that the price was a bit exorbitant. Who knows, maybe in 30 years we will use them too.
