"The most beautiful bathrooms in all of Japanese baseball.”

From Thee New York Times this Sunday, all the Japanese baseball stadium bathroom upgrade news that's fit to print (shown left: the Toto Washlet; the website is wonderful and informative):

"With the $51,111,111.11 posting fee the [Seibu] Lions earned from the Red Sox in the [Daisuke Matsuzaka] deal, they renovated the drab, outdated Seibu Dome, constructing concession stands and seating, resurfacing the playing field, installing an enormous video scoreboard and, most notably, building magnificent bathrooms with electronically warmed toilet seats.

'If the bathrooms are nice and convenient, then you do not hesitate to buy another cup of beer,' [Masanori Takahashi, the senior director of business operations for the Lions] said."
