‘Smartphone toilet paper’ at Tokyo Airport

Toilets at Tokyo airport have been equipped with “toilet paper” that you can use to disinfect your smartphone.

Paid for by Japanese mobile giant NTT Docomo, the sheets also include information about the firm’s public Wi-Fi networks as well as details about its smartphone travel app.

Japan is globally renowned for revolutionising its public toilets, many of which are clean, modern and boast very elaborate high-tech features.

“There are more than five times of germs on a smartphone screen as compared to a toilet seat,” NTT Docomo said in a post on its official YouTube page.

It added that the special cleaning rolls were “made to clean screens so foreign tourists could enjoy their travel hygienically”.

In true Japanese fashion, a quirky two-minute instructional video demonstrated how to correctly use the sheets, and also the “shower” or bidet function found in most public toilets in the country.
