Along with taking in temples and cherry blossoms, Tokyo visitors can now join a curated pilgrimage of the city's more modern wonders: its public toilets.

Penelope Panczuk was inspired to hop on the Tokyo Toilet Shuttle for a two-hour tour of artistically enhanced public conveniences by "Perfect Days," the Oscar-nominated film about a toilet cleaner in the city's Shibuya Ward.

"In the U.S. or in France where I originally come from, you just don't go," Panczuk said of using public facilities.
