Have you ever had a chance to try a bidet? Did it improve your visit to the loo?
According to Japanese correspondant Professor Toby Slade, going to the loo in Japan can be quite a pleasant experience.
A bidet is not a new concept, but the ‘washlet’ has only recently taken off in Japan.
You learn something new every day, Tim Brunero certainly did when he discovered that a duvet is actually a blanket, and a bidet is for personal hygene.
But before discussing how people do their business, more regal matters were discussed, as Toby filled us in on the Emperor’s current visit to hospital.
