A shower toilet

In Japan, toilets that offer showers are commonly called washlets, and include many advanced features rarely seen outside of Asia. The features commonly found on washlets include bidet washing, seat warming, and deodorization. The washlet isn't cheap yet, in Japan, they are everywhere. In fact, compared to plain, old, featureless toilets, washlets are in the majority of restrooms.

Toilets in Japan are by and large more detailed than toilets in other created countries. There are two styles of toilets regularly found in Japan; the most seasoned sort is a basic squat toilet, which is as yet basic out in the open comforts. After World War II, current Western-sort flush toilets and urinals ended up plainly normal. The present best in class for Western-style toilets is the bidet toilet, which, as of March 2016, is introduced in 81.2% of Japanese family units.. Sharon

Thanks Sharon- I'm wondering why the Japanese toilets haven't spread around the world. I love your site with bathroom reviews. The first idea on IdeaSpies was from a hotel bathroom and I've never seen this idea again, and also wonder why. If you ever do a review of TV mirrors please let me know. Lynn

Love the Idea Spies most. Always they comes up with innovative ideas all over. Suddenly I found this idea shared one year ago. I thought I can share my experience here to motivate people are not used to bidets. Those without a bidet in their home experience considerable difficulties trusting it could be powerful or agreeable. These individuals should try a bidet out. They may simply be agreeably shocked with the neatness and solace offered by a bidet. Through away the toilet paper holder right way to save billion trees per year as well.... Caroline Moderator at:

Thanks for your comment Caroline. Maybe these toilets could be marketed better outside Japan, Lynn
