One of the most interesting surprises when traveling to Japan is discovering the modern Japanese shower toilet. These sophisticated toilets transform a normal trip to the restroom into a high-tech experience by combining innovative technology with the Japanese sense of hygiene and cleanliness.
Toto, the world’s largest toilet manufacturer, is known for developing the cutting-edge washlet, blending seamless style with ergonomic efficiency, and a variety of customizable cleansing, heating, and deodorizing functions at the touch of a button.
The Seasons Residences, a Japanese-inspired four-tower upscale condominium that is now being developed in Bonifacio Global City (BGC), recently partnered with Toto to install these special washlets in specific units for its first tower, Haru.
These are seats equipped with powerful automated deodorizers that eliminate odor, as well as a soft-closing seat with varied temperature settings. All these functions can be conveniently controlled via a wireless remote with an illuminated touch pad.
The washlet is not just about comfort, it also has a pre-mist function that sprays the bowl with water before each use, preventing waste build-up and keeping the toilet bowl clean. The water spray wand is self-sanitizing, automatically cleaning itself before and after every use. In addition, the seat itself can be removed for easy cleaning.
Secondary bathrooms and smaller units in The Seasons Residences will be equipped with an Ecowasher, a toilet seat with a bidet that does not need electricity to function. It has a fully retractable nozzle for complete hygiene, and a knob that allows for easy adjustment of water pressure. The Ecowasher also comes with a soft-closing seat and lid.
These premium toilet fixtures are just a small part of The Seasons Residences’ promise of promoting a lifestyle focused on innovation, comfort, cleanliness, and energy-conservation.
The Seasons Residences is a joint project of Federal Land, Inc. and leading Japanese real estate group Nomura Real Estate Development Co. Ltd., along with Japanese retail conglomerate Isetan Mitsukoshi Holding Ltd. The development’s first tower, named Haru (Spring), is targeted for completion in 2023. The Seasons Residences will be situated on top of The Mitsukoshi Mall, a four-story lifestyle retail establishment by Isetan-Mitsukoshi.
