Here is what all the toilets looked like in Japan many years ago. Now most of the toilets are western style.
I remember my first time using one of these and thinking what a pain in the butt to completely take off my paints while avoiding touching the floor with them every time I have to go do my business. Squatting was painful on the knees too. Very inconvenient for anyone from the west.
Now I miss these old school Japanese toilets because going this way seems more of a natural process than sitting.
Many western toilets in Japan have heated seats that will wash your butt with warm water too! I have these in two bathrooms. It’s really nice in the winter to sit on a warm seat early in the morning.
