"Gadgets and Bits and..." City Overview Tip by Gnome

City Overview, Tokyo: 4 reviews and 6 photos


Gadgets and Bits and Electronic Things
The locals in Tokyo really love new technology, but often it complicates life a lot more than you can expect. They have little buttons and controls for everything, and often the instructions are not in English. You have to be really careful when you use the toilet, as there are lots of controls to very the seat temperature, flush control and fountain control. My first trip to one of these toilets in Tokyo was very awkward, as I turned on the fountain and could not turn it off. The whole cubicle was flooded out - lucky there was no one around.
