Instead of blowing their noses like us heathens in America, the Japanese apparently like to irrigate the nasal cavity first before expelling its mucus. The gadget fits up either nostril and shoots an irrigation solution, which is made up of one part water and a small bit of salt. We're not sure what the salt's for—killing bacteria perhaps—but the procedure is reportedly not very painful at all.

If this is anything like the bidets popular in Japan, then our experience tells us that we'll use it a couple times before going back to a plain old paper solution.
