Culture: Japanese toilets and bidets (Washlets) explained

| | Comments (1)

I just came back to the states from a 2-week trip to Japan. One of the
most interesting things for me was the omnipresent bidet seat. I was so
impressed that just about every public toilet has a bidet seat (usually
made by Toto). I loved it so much that I came home and bought one for
my own toilet. I consider it the most useful item in my house! I'm so
taken by the bidet seats that I started a little bidet seat review site
where you can learn all about the latest and most popular models, plus
find the best online prices (which are much lower than retail). Feel
free to email me if you have any questions, because sadly, I'm kind of
a bidet seat expert now!

Thanks for the link to the wikipedia article. Looking forward to
reading more.
