Warning! TMI! This is one of the infamous Japanese toilets. The seat is heated. There’s a small fan in the bowl to take care of embarrassing odors. And the control panel on the side is a personal washing system for when you’re done. Everything in Japan is automated. So, it wasn’t a leap for me to assume there was a timer on the washing system. It would be an uncomfortable moment, but over quickly. There was no automatic shut-off. And I couldn’t immediately figure out how to turn the damn thing off. And it wasn’t like I could get up to take a closer look, either… Oy.
