warm-bot season

Regent Street in London may have their fancy 'turning on of the Xmas lights' event, but round these parts things are different.

Where I am we have the low-key 'turning on of the toilet seat warmer' event. Yes, it's that time of year again. Temperatures have dropped to a bot-freezing 7C, cold enough to make the hairs on the back (as opposed to the front) of your bum stand-up, if you'll excuse the image.

And so it was, with no fanfare whatsoever, that the seat was warmed for the first time in months, and now comfy evacuations are once again the norm.

All across Japan, toilet seat warmers are being switched on.

Happiness is a warm seat.

A selection of buttons waiting to be fiddled with.

Ahhh, I'm so jealous. Some of us gaijin live in hovels with no electric toilet seat warmer, or buttons to play with. I had to resort to buying a hyaku yen toilet seat cozy. It's not as nice as a warmer, but does keep one's bottom from freezing to the seat. I hope on Thanksgiving you rememebered to be thankful for your good fortune.

It's good reason to leave the toilet seat down!

It's things like this that remind me of the times the whole family would gather around the Christmas light covered toilet and sing Christmas carols

Wow, what a toilet! Surely only in Japan. I'm a Brit in Thailand and here it is considered good fortune if the seat is fixed properly to the toilet and if it's not been piddled on already. I could do the whole Sunday paper on that little doozy of yours.
Great blog!

Just been to Kyoto (on hols from UK) and discovered even Zen temples have warm loo seats! And I was expecting ascetic hardship. AND I discovered one with a heated carpet no less (but that WAS for the tourists I guess)

I meant the temple, not the loo had the carpet!
