Scarlett cycles around fancy Shibuya toilets

Have you seen the new public toilets across Shibuya ward?

Japan is known to be one of the cleanest countries in the world, it is also known for its immaculate hospitality. Shibuya ward government created THE TOKYO TOILET project, where 17 brand new toilet facilities have been created,

This year only 7 have opened but by August 2021 they will all be complete. Famous Japanese architects have designed the toilets and they all have various interesting features. The ones you may of seen already in the news are the ones next to Yoyogi Park which is made from see-through colored glass. From the outside you can see inside the toilets, so you can check if it is occupied and also if it is clean. When you lock the door the glass becomes frosted so nobody can see inside.

I recommend you try and visit these toilets because they each have interesting designs. A fun way to do this is by bike!
