Today is more about Japanese toilette .  This is something
really interesting .

Where I call HEAD of the toilette..that has the name
Way back around 100 years ago. when most of Japanese
wore KIMONO. I hope everybody knows what KIMONO is.
It is a long dresslike traditional wearing for women..

When women use the toilette ..the dress was so long and
it was hard to hold while they use the toilette because..
they had to sqwat...so they needed a place to hold there
kimono for them.
Otherwise you can imagine what happens to their KIMONO.

So where I call head "KINKAKUSI" was the place to hold KIMONO
 while they are using.
But it looked  very different comparing from now.
Now it is designed small and low.. which no one can imagine
what is that for.  
But before it was at the higher position and
looked more like a hanger.
So if you wear  KIMONO and go to that right designed Japanese style
toilette. everybody will feel that   OH MY !! KINKAKUSHI is
such an usable object!!
and people will use it in a rightway without any explainings.

The year 2010..90percent of Japanese people is not wearing
KIMONO and so we don't need KINKAKUSI anymore ..but
as the design for Japanese style
We need to leave it like that to remind not to forget how our
customs were.

By the way ..about the right position to head for Japanese style toilette..
  I hope you noticed by the explainings above.
Way back a long time ago...the right position was totally opposite from now.

Now you see KINKAKUSI infront of you while you're using
That is going to be the right position .....BUT
longtime ago..KINKAKUSI had to come behind you
because you had to hang up back of your KIMONO while using the toilette

Things change a lot ...........isn't this interesting?
