It isn’t just another pretty face: the toiler [sic] paper in the Usagi Luxury Toilet Paper Gift Set is among the best toilet paper you can find in Japan in terms of quality and softness. For the stunning presentation, it has been awarded with the 2016 Omotenashi Selection Award. Coming in an eight-roll set with wrapping made from handmade traditional washi paper, a distinctive red tube that forms a striking red-on-white combination evocative of Japan’s national flag, and a three-ply for an extra level of durability, this luxury toilet paper certainly stands out and begs to be felt. When you are at home, it’s never too much to indulge in some simple pleasures like this toilet paper provides.
Or, if you live beyond the “simple pleasures” take a ride on these Imperial sheets:
It only takes a feel of the Hanebisho Imperial Household Luxury Toilet Paper ($80) to understand why it is supplied to the Imperial Household Agency and used by Japan’s emperors and princes: this is way beyond your usual toilet paper.
The Hanebisho Imperial Household Luxury Toilet Paper is made of 100% natural pulp, each roll wrapped in handmade washi paper (in three different yet suitable regal colors of blue, green, and white), and comes in a set of three in a beautiful gift box. Too discreet to have a fragrance but with a delicate butterfly pattern that recalls classic craftsmanship, this two-ply paper is equally as home in your home toilet as it is on a shelf or mantlepiece as decoration or an ornament.
