This public toilet has a Japanese aesthetic and is equipped with a built-in warm water bidet. As Japan hosts increasing numbers of foreign visitors, there are several features that make it easier to clean, in support of the Japanese custom of spotless public toilets. The lid-less form reduces the number of parts to be cleaned. The remote control panel is perfectly flat and washable with a single wipe. Installation bolts and pipes are hidden for easier floor cleaning, and the bowl and seat are unified in a single form. The seat is large enough to be comfortable for all body sizes. The simplicity of the design conveys a sense of cleanliness.
