In my country we used the hose to clean the buttocks. After I came Japan, In the general houses there was only general toilet. also I had to use the tissue paper to clean the buttocks. It was really hard for me and I was really sad to do that. But there was no other way to clean myself. After few years I met washlet toilets, and I bought it and I used right way. It was amazing feeling for me first time. I never forget that day – it was one of the best memories in my Japanese life.
