  • The influence of the Western toilet.

    So as the title says, I am curious just how far Western toilets have spread into Japan and Asia.

    I'm curious because I have seen many animes lately that have Western style toilets in most of the homes. So please if you are actually from Japan or Asia, what type of toilet do you have in your home. Also do you still sleep on a futon or do you have a Western bed as well?

    i have yet to see a home that does not have a western style toilet.
    however, most public places like train stations, malls and restaurants have a mix of western and japanese style toilets reportedly in both mens and womens bathrooms. Even when i went to a small village where the youngest permanent resident was 80 years old, the (only) restaurant in the valley, which had 4 tables, had one of each styles. though my university didn't have any japanese style toilets.

      I think I would have to say the "state of the art" in Japan far surpasses the toilets in the US...

            it is true that most of the "western style" toilets have features like bidet, spray, drying, deodorizing, auto seat warming, auto lid closing. and none of those are exactly new features. some public ones even have that water sound cause girls don't want you to hear them pee and some even have alarm systems (one of my classmates thought it was the flush button XD)

              This^

              And a hole in the ground that flushes is preferable to having your ass touch some other guy's ass.

              God forbid the seat is still warm.

              Always time it so you don't have to resort to using these Euro-American style "ass-to-ass" toilets in public facilities.

              Sympathy for U.S. professional truckers in that regard.

              Japanese sci-fi toilets are clearly the best, although some provide a little too much "service". E.g. Warm jet of water up the poopshot, quasi-enema style.



              In the Chinese, Japanese, and Korean homes I've been in without a sitting toilet, they had an "adapter", a metal support frame with a toilet-seat attached that can be moved if needed, for people who are handicapped, too fat, too unbalanced, etc. to squat.

              Interestingly, most American toilets are made by "American Standard", a Shanghai based Chinese manufacturing firm.

              As for beds, solid surfaces are the best for one's back, save for a few rare back maladies that demand soft accomodations. The more financially well off a family is, the more likely they are to have exaggerated mattresses and covers.

              Reasonably priced memory foam and inflatable designs are the rage nowadays in East Asia.

                I really like their control panels... gives an impression that it also has a built-in jet, a couple of machine guns, and ejection system.

                  it'd be a great idea to replace the spray built in the toilets with a fire hose.

                      Maybe, if you're a desperate housewife or a bugger...

                        I have one of those bidet things. It's like an addon for the toilet. Mine doesn't have music, but it makes beeping noises.

                          A bidet is a low-mounted plumbing fixture or type of sink intended for washing the genitalia, inner buttocks, and anus. Originally a French word, in English bidet is pronounced /bɪˈdei/ (US) or /ˈbiːdeɪ/ (UK).

                          Doesn't it sound delightful?
