Japanese Toilets

Japan has something of an odd toilet situation that may surprise many visiting foreigners. There are two primary types of toilet in Japan: a very simple toilet which requires users to squat rather than providing them with a seat and some of the most high-tech toilets the world has ever seen!

The squat toilet was popular until World War II, during which Western toilets were introduced. This quickly became popular and was enjoyed so much that the Japanese began upgrading their toilets. Today, things have gotten borderline out of hand. Why? Well, here are some features of modern Japanese toilets:

  • A bidet feature (and accompanying blow-dryer)
  • Temperature controlled seats
  • A mood music feature
  • An air deodorizer
  • An automatic lid closing (and opening) system
  • Germ-resistant surfaces
  • A blood sugar level tester
  • A pulse reader
  • A blood pressure monitor
  • A body fat monitor
  • A glow-in-the-dark mode
  • A space heater/air conditioner
  • Phone/internet capabilities

Oh… the toilet can also greet you.

Yeah. The Japanese do NOT mess around with their toilets. And we totally want one. For good old-fashioned American toilets and plumbing, you can always count on Tritan Plumbing for quality service. Contact us today for more information.
