Now, Japanese using mobile phones to find nearest toilet
Tokyo: A mobile phone has been launched in Japan that will help the country's citizens locate the nearest public toilet in double quick time.
According to The Telegraph, users of the mobile lavatory locator are able to upload the free software from the Check A Toilet website.
The Check A Toilet program, created by the software company Access Co, enables mobile phone users to search for maps highlighting the nearest public toilet to their location.
From train stations and beaches to department stores and parks, the software lists thousands of maps highlighting the location of public toilet, including details of their facilities such as baby changing areas, according to reports in Mainichi Daily News.
