WATCH: Japan offers ‘special’ tissue for wiping smartphones

/ 07:35 PM January 03, 2017

When you happen to visit Japan’s Narita International Airport, make sure to disinfect your smartphones.

NTT Docomo, a Japanese tech company, invented a “toilet paper” designed to wipe off dust and dirt from your smartphones, available in all restrooms at the airport.


In a two-minute instructional video uploaded on their Youtube channel, the company teaches tourists how to properly use Japan’s high-end toilet facilities, and at the same time use the unique smartphone toilet paper.

“People around the world say toilets in Japan are extremely clean and advanced,” the clip’s caption read. “We will introduce [the] correct way of squatting at a Japanese-style toilet, how to use bidet function, and most importantly, how to use toilet paper for [a] smartphone.”


These smartphone tissues are assembled at restrooms inside every toilet cubicle. As part of the company’s campaign, they printed out WiFi details and brief information about their smartphone travel app on the tissue wipes.

This amazing service will be available until March 15. Gianna Francesca Catolico
