High-tech Toilets : Enjoy the advanced features.

▶ Many Japanese buildings have Western toilets. Most Japanese houses have Western toilets with heated seats and bidets. Some older buildings still have the old squat type toilets.

▶ Inside the toilet bowl is a nozzle for washing the bottom and for bidet. When you press a button, the nozzle moves and water shoots upward. This may feel strange at first.

▶ An advanced model will automatically open and close the toilet cover for you. Some types also have dryers and massaging fountains for your bottom.
