Japanese Style Women’s Squat Toilet
Have you ever encountered a Japanese squat toilet during your travels or living in Japan? At first, they may seem intimidating or strange compared to the familiar Western-style sitting toilets, but don’t be afraid to give them a try.
Squatting during elimination is actually a more natural position for the body, allowing for easier and more complete elimination of waste. In addition, it reduces the risk of hemorrhoids and other digestive issues. Many Japanese people prefer squat toilets for their health benefits, and they can be found in public restrooms throughout Japan.
One unique feature of Japanese squat toilets is the presence of a small water tank or bucket nearby. This is used for “tabo,” the practice of washing oneself after using the toilet rather than using toilet paper. While it may seem strange at first, it is actually considered more hygienic and environmentally friendly than using paper.
If you do encounter a Japanese squat toilet, don’t be intimidated. Give it a try and see if you prefer it over the sitting toilets. It may take some getting used to, but you may find that it is a more natural and healthy way to go.
