Japan has a strong cleaning culture. There is this traditional cleaning practice called ‘Soji’ which is common in Japanese schools. There are street workers keeping the streets and train stations clean. Posting common street signs on buildings to remind everyone to maintain a clean area. This has a significant impact in Japan, assisting in the creation of a clean and healthy environment.
Aside from ‘Soji’ that the Japanese practices, there are technologies that can help people maintain their cleaning habits. The goal of a Japanese appliance company is to create better appliances for every household. Some toilets are similar to the Japanese super toilets. These models are flexible to meet provide comfort to toilet users by adjusting to the ideal temperature, pressure, and even angle for anyone. This way bathroom hygiene will improve and helps you save money by reducing the amount of toilet paper and single-use wipes.
The most common issue with public restrooms is keeping them clean and sanitary. In japan usual impression on public restrooms are dark, smelly and dirty.
This fascinating restroom can be found in the parks of Shibuya, Tokyo. Its walls are completely transparent, which sets it apart from the rest of the public restrooms. The knob inside each cubicle serves as a switch on the doorknob that blurs the walls to provide privacy. Architects that made this possible uses smart glass as a foundation for the restroom which makes people feel comfortable using public toilets. This helps fostering a spirit of hospitality for the person using the restroom.
Japan’s working routine is changing, and this became an opportunity to use technology to preserve Japan’s Soji culture. We use home appliances on a daily basis, with a better chance for improvement. Bladeless fans, bread machines, electric rice cookers, and automatic toilet bidets are just a few of the new and improved appliances available in Japan.
