Unique Things Found In Japanese Apartments That Can Terrify and Delight The Tourists

9Some Japanese bathrooms are very different. Sometimes there are no taps in the bathtubs.

Japan’s bathing culture is different from ours and the rest of the world. In order to dip your body into the bathtub, you first need to take a shower and wash your body perfectly. If the water system is new, then, as a regulation, it is controlled with the assistance of a special board. What you really need to do is to switch on the panel and set the desired temperature on it. As a result, you don’t really need to rotate the faucet and set the water temperature. Then, the water will come through a specific drain.
