TOKYO–Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but crystals are clearly for asses.

That’s what Japanese interior-fixtures maker Lixil believes, and it’s proving it with this awesomely blinged-out toilet under its Inax brand.

The Satis loo is decked out in 72,000 Swarovski crystals and is valued at $130,000, according to Lixil. It’s on display at the company’s showroom just outside Tokyo’s tony Ginza district.

“2011 was a really tough year for Japan, with the earthquake and tsunami disasters,” says Lixil’s Shintaro Kaai. “We wanted to do this to cheer everybody up just before Christmas.”
