12 Reasons Why Japanese Bathrooms are the Best!

Posted by GreaterGoodness

In America, we don’t really think about how our bathrooms are set up, or why they’re set up that why. We’ve got a room and we put everything in there that we need. But does that really make sense? After seeing how Japanese bathrooms are set up it seems like there might be better ways out there.

Here’s a list of the 12 reasons why Japanese bathrooms are the best followed on the last page by the super cute and informative video.

Why does everything have to be placed into the same room? I can’t even count how many times I’ve been in the shower and had someone knocking for me to hurry so they could pee. It makes sense to have a separate room for just the toilet. And it keeps the smells contained!

I’ve never seen a better sink in a bathroom in the US. Some look pretty cool, but are nowhere near as functional. I think I’d rather have function over form… Sorry Martha Stewart! Or whoever is designing those things.

This one seems a little odd to me, and in fact, when I went to Japan, this one took a while to get used to. But once I did, oh wow! Game changer! It’s so nice and relaxing to be able to sit and wash yourself. And there’s no fear of falling when the bottom gets soapy!
