As I mentioned before, I have about 40 days where I will be "roughing it," living out of my three suitcases before my sea shipment arrives to Tokyo. Midtown Tokyo is a development with a mall, restaurants, bars, a grocery store, the Ritz Carlton, a big office building, and my residence. Check it out:
Yes, that's a tv and the washer and dryer and my bathroom. The washer and dryer is the same unit. It takes about five hours to dry a load of laundry, dry cleaning it is.
The shower room, which also holds the bathtub. The whole thing can be turned into a steam room.
And the creme de la creme. Is this the thermostat? The intercom system? Actually, you are looking at the toilet controls. Light flush, heavy flush, a variety of types of "cleansings," water noises, fans, deodorizer, and even a heated seat! There are also buttons to raise and lower the seat as demonstrated below:
I haven't quite figured out the fasciation with the toilets or maybe the better question is why haven't we adapted to these in the US?!
