Toilet transformer zaps old-style Japanese squatters into the 21st century

Japanese residents tired of squatting when they go to the smallest room can get themselves all Westernized thanks to the latest in new-fangled toilet converters from Inax.

For ¥36,400 ($296) Inax will provide an attachment (PDF link) that sits atop an old-style squat toilet to create a structure upon which buttocks may be (carefully) parked.

That’s not all, though - an actual seat needs to be added to finish off the assemblage. Inax sells a range of electronic ‘Washlet’ shower units that warm, wash and dry sensitive Japanese rears starting at around ¥74,000 ($602) on top of all that. Ouch.
