We all know the Japanese make the world’s best toilets, but bathrooms at Tokyo Narita are about to get even better!
An extra roll of toilet paper is now available in most stalls at NRT: compact in size. The purpose? To clean your mobile phone!
Paid for by Japanese mobile giant NTT Docomo, the sheets also include information about the firm’s public Wi-Fi networks as well as details about its smartphone travel app.
OK, an advertising gimmick in English. Or perhaps not…
NPR reports that smartphones have five times the number of germs as a toilet seat. That is astounding. Admittedly, I never clean my phone but this new study will make me do so.
Here’s a video on the new “toilet paper” at Narita International:
The compact toilet paper will be available thru March, though if this study is true I hope it remains indefinitely.
As a sidenote, when we remodeled the bathroom in our house I
demanded stated my preference for a Toto toilet with all the bells and whistles. Sure, it would be an investment compared to a $200 Home Depot toilet, but there is nothing like a heated toilet seat with bidet. My wife flat out refused, stating it was unpractical and ugly. Do other people have these arguments?
