There’s a new exhibit in Tokyo, Japan that features a giant toilet and slide that allows kids to learn about sanitation while having fun. It’s called ‘Toilet!? Human Waste and Earth’s Future’ is attempting to draw attention to the 2.5 billion people on planet Earth who don’t have access to clean water and toilets.
It’s definitely a noble cause and important issue, but the folks at the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation know how to get people to come out. By making it exciting, fun and pretty silly, the turnout has been great. We think It’s great to see people so enthusiastic about toilets!
In Japan, where hi-tech toilets are all the rage, kids learn about how the sewage system really works by becoming a part of it. They can climb into the giant toilet and flush themselves through a human-sized version of a septic system. It’s fun, educational and is all about the toilet, which we of course love. At this exhibit (it’s actually more of a ride), children and adults alike take on the life of a piece of poo. It sounds gross, but it’s getting pretty popular.
People wear poo-shaped hats before the big flush and slide to experience what it would be like to be a piece of poo. It’s a weird way to spend and afternoon but the exhibit is intended to spread awareness about sewage, health and waste education. They got that part right anyway!
At Johnny On The Spot, we excel at keeping it clean. Environmentally friendly is the name of the game and we are winning thanks to technology like solar powered porta potty lights. We also offer wastewater holding tanks at Johnny On The Spot in case you don’t have access to a sewer.
Also check out our portable water systems for field office trailers in New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. They offer a convenient alternative when you don’t have access to a sewer hookup. It’s like having indoor plumbing! Your employees will be much happier with our portable water systems.
The exhibit also features goofy antics like singing toilets who thank you once flushed. “You too can be feces” says one sign hanging in the museum.
The exhibit will be open until October if you’re thinking about heading to Tokyo anytime soon. But until then, check out what Johnny On The Spot has to offer! We’re definitely cheaper than a flight across the pacific.
Tokyo may have a poo slide, but you’ve got Johnny On The Spot.
