See through bathrooms

Transparent Japanese toilet

Tokyo parks are attracting extra attention for their unusual new features: public toilets with transparent walls. The restrooms feature see-through walls that turn opaque when a user enters the facility and locks the door. The installations are part of The Tokyo Toilet project, which is redesigning 17 of the city’s public bathrooms with different designers. The Japanese have long been known for their, well, potty behavior. From a high-tech toilet museum to airport dog toilets, bathroom culture has been a top priority. “This allows users to check the cleanliness and whether anyone is using the toilet from the outside.” Users said remembering to lock the doors is of extra importance, since a user inside the facility can’t tell whether the walls appear transparent or frosted from the outside.  Each facility comprises three separate cubicles – a male, female and handicapped toilet – which are divided by mirrored walls. “At night, the facility lights up the park like a beautiful lantern.”


Private funnies:

A woman noticed her husband standing on the bathroom scale, sucking in his stomach.
“Ha¬¬! That’s not going to help,” she said.
“Sure, it does,” he said. “It’s the only way I can see the numbers.”

A receptionist at a doctor’s office announces new privacy laws to patients waiting in the common area.
“Due to government Covid privacy guidelines, Starting today, people won’t be called by their name.” People somehow smile and nod.
“So, the man with hemorrhoids, now please come in.”

Instead of calling it the “John”, I’m going to start calling my bathroom the Jim.
That way I can say I go to the Jim every morning.
