One of the things I love about living in Japan are the toilets. It took a little getting used to at first, but after a while, I realized just how great they are. I’ll skip the details about why they’re so great, but now that I have my own Toto Washlet, I’m bringing that sucker with me wherever I wind up. (Or just installing another one and leaving it, like a Johnny Washlet-seed or something.)
Installing it took a little work, but once I got the kinks worked out, it runs like a dream. The idea of mixing electricity and plumbing? Not that scary with good wiring and good plumbing and modern tech.
Viva plumbing. Viva civilization.
