More hygienic, more ecological and more suitable for people with reduced mobility, the Japanese toilets from Japan WC never cease to convince. Icing on the cake, their design is particularly attractive.

A nice surprise in Japan

While fulfilling his dream of discovering Japan, its atmosphere, its gastronomy and its deeply rooted culture, Guillaume Selva is surprised by an unexpected element: the toilets. Indeed, in the land of the rising sun, temple of new technologies, the toilets are real jewels of modernity, with a futuristic design, which allow you to clean and dry yourself while remaining comfortably installed. Thus, on his return to France, the traveler brings back an idea in his suitcase: to popularize in France these Japanese toilets. "The French population is accustomed to the sole use of toilet paper, but our products have a number of features that provide comfort and optimal cleanliness to their users," explains Guillaume, founder of Japan WC. t83>

More hygienic and easier cleaning

The French company therefore offers Japanese toilets for all budgets: complete installations, but also electric toilet seats to fix and Japanese bidets to install yourself. Thanks to their water jet, the power and temperature of which are adjustable, the Japanese toilets from Japan WC gently clean the private parts, but above all with much greater efficiency than using conventional toilet paper alone. The toilets are also equipped with a drying function, for a complete and ecological cleaning. Finally, after each use, the spray heads are self-cleaning. These innovative products, with an elegant, refined and futuristic design, also allow the elderly or people with disabilities to access autonomy in terms of intimate hygiene.

Traditional Japanese bathtubs

To continue its sharing of the Japanese tradition with increasingly curious French people, Japan WC also offers Japanese wooden bathtubs, designed by hand, which bring a unique cachet to a bathroom. “In addition to the aesthetic aspect which allows you to bathe in a soothing and natural atmosphere, they have the particularity of retaining the heat for a long moment of relaxation. The heat retained by the cedar wood allows the dilation of blood vessels and contributes to good cardiovascular function,” adds Guillaume. The Japan WC company supports its customers in the best possible way in the choice and installation of toilets with expert customer service for its products.
In order to respond to a recurring request from customers who rightly wish to be able to view the different models presented for sale, the rapidly expanding company plans to open its first physical store in 2022, in or around Paris. Japan WC will also offer its products to nursing homes, retirement homes and hospitals, as well as hotels in order to make these technological tools with an elegant and refined design available to as many people as possible.

Experience the magic of onsen from home!

These hot spring baths of volcanic origin, established as a true way of life in Japan, are sources of well-being and relaxation, both for body and mind. What if the onsen really came to your bathroom?

The Japanese hot spring bath: a hedonistic pleasure

The Japanese thermal bath is an ancient tradition. Many myths and legends have their origins in the onsen, which had their own deities, the kami.

The onsen – a word that designates both the source, the place and the bath itself – are located in the countless spa towns of the Japanese archipelago, in the mountains. Volcanic springs renowned for their therapeutic properties because they are rich in mineral salts. Very popular with Japanese people, we usually meet there with friends, family and sometimes even with colleagues. We share a moment of absolute relaxation away from the hustle and bustle of the city, and we can socialize there...in silence. Finally, we go in naked, and...clean.

Japanese bathtubs: the Japanese art of living at home

Established in 2020, Japan WC is a young company that allows us to have this experience from our bathroom. With these handmade Japanese bathtubs – called ofuro and which the Japanese use themselves – you can recreate the world of onsen at home. and experience an exceptional moment of relaxation.

Count on the delicious and typical smell of cedar wood – a material that retains heat longer and with which the bathtubs are made – to transport you directly to the heights of the Japanese peaks.

To complete the experience, why not enhance the water with Lemon Eucalyptus or Rosemary essential oils, which are ideal against rheumatism, or even Juniper essential oils to eliminate toxins?

Sitting on a buttocks rest provided for this purpose, just close your eyes and relax...Mount Fuji is only a few kilometers away.

Several looks and sizes of baths are available to suit all tastes, budgets and bathroom sizes: round baths of 150, 120 or 100 cm in diameter or classic-shaped baths. And if you only have a limited space, Japan WC also offers a round acrylic bathtub, thus clearing a place of choice like a shower in a bathroom.

Japan WC: bathtubs, but not only
