Fish and sea turtles that watch you poo on an underwater toilet? Only in Japan!


More proof that Japan really is the only country to live in if you’re a tech-hound? This. Just take a look at it – it’s not just any old toilet, it’s an underwater toilet with an aquarium built around it. And it’s for women only, which means no toilet seats left up, and no dribble on the floor. I’m there already.

Fortunately anyone, well, women, can use it too, as the $270,000 toilet is located at the Mumin Papa Cafe in Akashi. Stocking exotic fish, and even a sea turtle to watch as you go about your business, the toilet is your own little slice of underwater extravagance.

Let’s just hope the sea-turtle doesn’t have a web-cam attached to its shell.
