Japanese Toilets

I’ve commented on a previous trip about the wonders of Japenese toilets. I think that their toilet technology is another sign of their fastidiousness about hygeine.

Anyway, our hotel room here at Hiroshima has a more elaborate set of controls compared to others that we have encountered. The attached photos are self explanatory and I do have to say that there is nothing like a swift jet of warm water directed exactly on target.
