ANDON TOILET

The former restroom in Nishihara 1-chome were uninviting and rarely used.

We thought it was important to create a facility that not only fulfills the basic requirements of a public restroom, such as having enough toilets to ensure a reasonable wait time, but offers a unique appeal that encourages more people to use the facility.

By constructing a facility that is bright and open in the limited space of the site, we hope to improve the image of not only the restroom but the entire park.

We hope that the restroom will illuminate the park like andon, or lanterns, creating an inviting public space for the visitors.
