Products only available in Japan : Washlets that are globally compatible

Products only available in Japan : Washlets that are globally compatible

Almost a guaranteed sight at Narita and Haneda airports these days is that of foreign tourists carrying a “washlet” with a carry-case and cart. “Washlet” which has become a by-word for “shopping spree”, is a Japanese product that the world adores. A major achievement of the washlet was to evolve the toilet from a “place of excretion” to a “place to comfortably excrete”, and has even been dubbed the “third place”!? Here we will introduce washlets that can be used overseas:

One point to remember when using is the difference in water. Japan’s water is soft, while most regions in China have hard water, which furs up easily, causing the spout to harden. Also, when setting up, you need an electricity port to plug into. This also applies to Japan, but before buying, it is worth checking with people already using them in your area or at the support center to make sure that you can use it.
