Tokyo Toilet Exhibition “Toilet!?-Human Waste & Earth’s Future”

Some one may already know about this special Exhibition held in Tokyo Mirai Kan, the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation in Tokyo and it has been very popular now.

This exhibit aims to make people more comfortable discussing their bowel movements featuring a giant slide and singing toilet seats. Kids love to take a turd hat and slide this giant toilet slide, touch lots of kind of animals’s turds and see different kind of toilet in history.

Toilets in Japan are clever and sophisticated with a lid that automatically opens and shuts, and with a self-cleaning function. However,some children in Japan have trouble  using the school toilets because of embarrassment or some other reasons. On the other hand, when you see the world, there are still about 2.5 billion people are unable to use toilet and many children lose their lives due to lack of sanitation.

Parents and kids can discuss more about their waste and make them feel comfortable after visiting this exhibition. They also have workshops for parents and kids will be held!
Enjoy learning about human waste and toilet!
