Japan is a nation which is never short of ideas and has mastered the art of continuously rising from the dead to prove its superiority – the ‘world’s largest toilet’ is one such innovation to attract tourists as reported in foxnews dated the 31st of May 2012.
Bombing of Hiroshima in WW-II could not rob it of its creativity and enthusiasm to survive, neither could the disasters of Tsunami and Fukushima.
Japan has now shifted focus to a tiny industrial city of Ichihara situated on the outskirts of Tokyo, the capital of Japan, where it has set up the ‘world’s largest toilet’.
The city has high expectations to lure in tourists in hordes so that they can experience for themselves the magic of being one with nature while answering nature’s call.
The facility consists of a 6 ½ feet high glass box surrounded by row upon rows of flower boxes in an outside garden – and is meant exclusively for women.
It has been designed by Sou Fujimoto.
The annual operating costs of this luxurious setup works out to around $125,300.
