My TOKYO Spaceship(=^_^=)
Sooooo, a few weeks ago I went to Tokyo, Japan!
The COOLEST thing about Japan… THE TOILETS!!! It sounds weird, but the toilets were honestly the most interesting thing that I have seen while in Asia. The toilets in Japan are known as the most sophisticated and swanky toilets on the PLANET! The toilets have heated seats, massage options, water jet adjustments, automatic lid opening, flushing after use, wireless control panels, a back light in the bowl(ew) etc etc etcccccc! The swankier toilets in fancier establishments play music while you poop! They look like mini spaceships.
It honestly took me awhile to get used to using them. Especially since they flush on their own and shoot out water to clean your behind :p
Cool but they not for me.
Besides the spaceship toilets, Tokyo is a very cute city… resembles NYC a lot. The buildings are tall on the outside, but many of the floors inside of the building are too short for me… I’m basically 6ft(yea, I’m a big momma :]).
I wish I could have stayed longer than a weekend BUT Japan is TOO expensive. I wish I could have been immersed in the culture for at least 2 months because viewing as a weekend tourist is waaaaaaay different from viewing Tokyo from the eyes of someone who has been there for awhile. Oh well, the experience was pretty cool.
Almost forgot… the metro system was RIDIC!!!! I almost cried when I saw the map.
It’s a must see!
MADNESS!!!!! (in a good way) Tokyo isn’t even shaped like the map
Take your shoes off inside!
