Emitting the noise of a flushing toilet to spare a woman’s blushes, the Toto Otohime ("sound princess") is a standard fixture in many toilets around Japan. But what do you do when you enter a toilet that doesn’t have an Otohime installed? Enter the Keitai ("Mobile") Otohime. This slender pink device, which comes in two attractive designs, can be slipped into a ladies’ handbag or connected to your phone or purse.
Japanese women often flush the toilet to hide embarrassing sounds but as each flush uses up around six liters of water, in these environmentally conscious times, a device like the Keitai Otohime allows you to both be discreet and save the planet. By simply pressing a button you can mask the noise of your toilet activities.
