'Bidocoro' is a Luxury Toilet Crafted in the Tradition of Lacquerware

Japanese lacquerware inspired Sakamoto Co. to create the Bidocoro luxury toilet.

Naturally, the Bidocoro is a toilet that's painted with lacquer and it is meant to be a showpiece of the Japanese art and craft style. For this reason, the Bidocoro is set to be installed in tourist destinations such as hotels and other facilities that newcomers to the country will be passing through. Because the Bidocoro is expressly after the business market, Sakamoto is currently testing its product with the help of a toilet shop situated in a popular tourist destination in Japan.

The Bidocoro is not the first luxury toilet to grace the market—in the past, there have been toilets shown at museums and special exhibitions covered in 18-karat gold and thousands of Swarovski crystals.
