In Ichihara City, about 70 kilometers from Tokyo (across the bay), opened the world’s largest public restroom, with the specific intent of creating a tourist attraction.
The $125,000 toilet is made for women only. The toilet is just outside the train station, which was designed by Sou Fujimoto, a noted architect, who said he had fun designing this attraction.
The structure, which occupies a total area of 200 square meters, was constructed to give the toilet user, a 360 degree view of a garden filled with vases of flowers. Then, to protect the privacy of the user, a wall of two meters high was erected, for protection from prying eyes.
