$100,000 Toilet studded with diamonds

A diamond-studded toilet valued at over $100,000 comprising of more than 72,000 pieces of Swarovski cut crystal was manufactured by INAX in tandem with a jeweller from Austria. It is currently wowing visitors at a showroom in the Ginza shopping district in Japan.

Japan takes its deities very seriously and bathrooms are no exception. Kazuo Sumimiya, director of the showroom, has stated in a report that “we believe a deity exists in the (toilet). That’s why keeping lavatories clean and taking good care of (them) have been a Japanese custom since long ago.”

If the toilet were sold, it would probably fetch about 10 million yen, but it will be on display until the end of the year.
