Japan’s Hi-Tech Toilets

Open the door to the bathroom, and the toilet lid automatically rises. A soothing sound emanates from the toilet, and as you sit down, deodorizing functions begin to work. Push a button, and the toilet washes your rear end. Push another button and it gently dries it with warm air. The toilet will automatically flush, and when your leave the room, the lid will automatically close. People living in Japan are used to such toilets, but for people visiting for the first time, it can be a source of culture shock. During Tokyo Design Week, people could visited bathrooms that looked like spaceships, and talked to Mariko Shimasaki, from toilet manufacturer Toto.
