Toilet revolution in UK, I doubt it

2006.08.16
Dear All,

Hello, hope all of you have enjoyed autumn-like summer in the UK.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/britain/article/0,,1851007,00.html

Though not a good topic if you are about to eat something, I have found this article really interesting. As some of you may know, Japanese people are always concerned how they can be seen by others. Furthermore, these days, under their clothes too, I think.

When a leading company, TOTO, launched [Washlet] some decades ago in Japan, I think that many Japanese were embarrassed by this idea. Then, in order to break emotional barrier, TOTO created an amazing TV ad, in which a female Japanese punk singer, Jun Togawa, told customers, [You know, even bum wants to be washed too].
Since then, this type of toilet has become popular in Japan.

I too want to use this in the UK if possible, but I do think that people in the UK would be happy to use this. Not because it is expensive, but because people might not care under their clothes, which is my point of view.

If you have a chance to go to Japan, please try it, you may like it.

Enjoy the summer!
