A new type of toilet has become VERY popular, starting in the mid 90's called the washlet. The washlet is basically the opposite of the old "squatter" model, based on the western style toilet. However, there are several bells and whistles built into the seat and bowl including seat warmers, male and female bidets and pressure triggered fans to dry. Also, the tank of the toilet is generally filled through a tube outside the toilet that loops around from the back, instead of the western internal mechanism. These toilets are generally expensive, depending on the type of interface involved. The wall mounted control panel I believe is the most expensive, but for those on a budget, there are some with recliner-like arms to house the controls. There are also seats that only heat themselves available, if one decides to rely on toilet paper...and yes; I did use the bidet.
