According to the World Toilet Organization, approximately 2.4 billion people lacks access to a basic toilet. I know this is a serious global matter, but in celebration of the World Toilet Day today, let me feature one unique toilet I found, used and amazed about when I visited Osaka this February 2015.
It is the public toilet found at Harukas 3000 Observatory, the top most floor of the highest building in Japan known as Harukas Abeno Tower in Tennoji, Osaka.
Japan I suppose has the most technologically advanced toilets. But the one I found in Harukas 3000 Observatory is not about the toilet fixtures and facilities. It is actually the breathtaking view inside the washroom.
This toilet I guess is not for the faint at heart. Acrophobic attacks would definitely starts to set in as soon as you enter it. The walls of the toilet are thick clear glass in which toilet users would not have the choice but to look at the chilling panoramic view of the buildings, roads, bridges and other infrastructures of Kansai area.
