TOILET

トイレ[TOIRE]

Japanese toilets are known worldwide for their cleanliness and multi-functionality. Public toilets are usually free to use and provided with toilet paper. Some public toilets are even equipped with heated seats and warm-water bidet, which astonish many international tourists. Some latest models automatically open the lid for you as soon as you enter the compartment, and flush when you are done. They anticipate your every move like an experienced servant.
