Tokyo has installed two-transparent glass toilets in a public park to promote cleanliness.

The glass bathrooms turn opaque when in use. It uses smart glass and different colors. The purpose of glass is to invoke a sense of realization in public how clean public toilets could be.

Shigeru Ban is behind this unique idea. “This allows users to check the cleanliness and whether anyone is using the toilet from the outside,” he said. “At night, the facility lights up the park like a beautiful lantern.

The innovation is installed in two public parks so far; the Haru-no-Ogawa Community Park and the Yoyogi Fukamachi Mini Park.

The venture is a part of Tokyo’s Toilet Project which aims at redesigning bathrooms of 17 cities. This project was launched The Nippon Foundation which claims to build new toilets that everyone can use.

The bathrooms are accessible to everyone irrespective of their age, gender, or race. Japan was known as one of the world’s cleanest countries and that its public toilets were cleaner than most others around the world. However, the concept of public toilets being dark and smelly is highly prevalent in society.

To curb such misconceptions, it was important to reinstate this trend. Other designs include a stone building that is designed to look good in parks and a bathroom with spaces for “men, women, and everyone.
