Do As Tokyo Does Luxurious Lavatory
(Entered Apr. 28, 2010)
  Recent Do As Tokyo Does:

A co-worker, noticing my tendency to sometimes post about Japan's quirkier side, recommended I go check out the 1st floor washroom at Gajoen, a luxurious hotel in Meguro.
It's funny how things turn out. Being famous for a washroom probably isn't what Gajoen was hoping for when they set out to make their luxurious lavatory. Not too many people know about it, but rumour has been spreading, and it made its way to me not as:
'Wow, Gajoen is an amazing hotel!'
but as:
'Go to Gajoen to see their toilet.'

I don't think I've ever been in a washroom equipped with its own river and bridge before...
And since it's a public washroom, there was nothing stopping me (or you) from walking through the lobby doors and heading down the hall to have a look. Nor is there any reason you can't use it while you're there (well why not?). Ever wonder how Japanese royalty take care of business? Now you can find out.
