Showcasing The World's Most Instagrammed Restrooms
Apparently there isn't anything that's not "Instagrammable." Even toilets can be Insta-friendly, according to an article on the Virgin Media television website.
#BathroomSelfie has notched up more than 1.5 million uses on Instagram to date, while #ToiletSelfie has 277,000. Thankfully, the perfume company Fragrance Direct has checked 40,000 of them and shared its favorites.
The photo gallery includes everything from pee pods to a restroom that would make Marie Antoinette blush.
Believe it or not, this isn't the first example of restrooms having a moment. A 2018 CleanLink report focused on a photographer in Japan, Hidefumi Nakamura, who travels throughout the country in search of some of the quirkiest restrooms.
From turreted, castle-style structures to modernist facades to tiled buildings surrounded by cherry blossom, he captures some very diverse designs.
According to CNN Travel reports, Nakamura's photographs capture the unique architecture of each bathroom and give a flavor of each location. In his captions, he adds extra detail about the bathroom's surroundings and distinctive features.
Nakamura's eye-catching shots of these idiosyncratic bathrooms are on display for all to see at his increasingly popular Instagram account, @toilets_a_go_go.
Also, in 2016, Lonely Planet published a guide to the world's best bathrooms. In London, developers are looking at converting old public restrooms into restaurants, homes and bars. And in China, just six months ago, officials launched a program that would improve bathrooms across the country.
