A startup company, Kokenawa Inc. produces the worlds smallest and portable toilet called Pocket Toilet and it proves to be very convenient when nature calls.
The founder of Kokenawa Inc., Yoshinori Kokinawa came up with the idea back in 2019. When the city of Nagano was hit by Typhoon Hagibis, it left the residence completely devastated. While he was volunteering to help the victims, he noticed the long lines of people waiting in front of public toilets for a long period of time - waiting for their turn. That was when the lightbulb in his head turned on and the idea of creating a portable and easy-to-use toilet for those who have to go do their business came about.
