In Japan, you will never be disappointed when you visit the toilet. It is not uncommon to open the door onto a Japanese style loo known as a washiki . Nothing more than a ceramic bowl on the floor, you are required to squat with your back to the door so be sure to use the lock. On the other extreme you will have the luxurious pleasure of a Japanese washlet*. With more buttons than the captain's chair on the USS Enterprise, this feat of technology will wash, dry and pamper your buttocks. Automatic seat raisers, adjustable water temperature, jet stream controls, heated seats and motion detectors for flushing. Sometimes these are literally, the best seat in the house.
