The Japanese toilet is more sanitary so you don’t get all those symptoms of the flu.

Please enjoy your toilet time? Would that be the byproduct?

Shower of toilet? Is that why the water was yellow and brown? I thought the water was just dirty

The shower moving around will scare the constipation right out of you! It is a bad driver.

In France, it is called eau de toilet.

I’ve never had an experience in the camp that was comfortable for my anus.

Well this is just great.
My first time living in Japan was for a year between 1988 and 1989.
Cripes I could have used this kind of detailed how-to back then.
Back then I’d have been happy as $H!T to read such a detailed explanation. ‘Coz trying to figure it out on my own sure didn’t work!

No, I never used a shower of toilet and I don’t intend to use it at all because:

1.) I’m afraid of being sorry for incontinence
2.) I remember the experience in the camp (^^)
3.) It is not comfortable for my hip (anus)

It looks like a tiny bathtub.

@Yu No Hoo | 4:46 am : You should probably avoid touching anything in it that looks like a rubber duck, though.

@Pete | 4:32 am: Imagine how a Japanese person must feel when confronted by a western toilet for the first time! That’s probably the reason for the “Do not stand on the seat” instruction.

One thing they forgot to mention is which way around you squat over this thing. I’d guess you face the raised part but I could be wrong.

How would it help if one is constipated?

Does it spray warm oil?

It is amazing that a simple item like a flushing toilet, can vary so widely between countries.

Also their “western style” toilets are almost full of water, just not a little at the bottom.

@DnT 457:

Not just Japan. China, Korea, other Asian countries too.
At least the Japanese (and probably S. Koreans) are now totally used to western toidys.

When I lived in Japan the unspoken Gaijin rule was, if you have to visit the Number Two restaurant, find the closest McDonalds.

As for “more sanitary”: Not really. Take your pick.
Splatter the bowl where it stays contained…or splatter the floor surrounding the porcelain hole in the floor. I pick the former. At least you can wipe down the seat first!

Now that we’re on this topic:

Even living in Japan 3 times, I am STILL not used to the little old cleaning ladies coming in to mop and clean WHILE men are in there on the throne…or standing there taking a whizz.

Marum

Superfluous instructions. What did they think I was going to do with the used toilet paper? Have it framed for posterity?

Yu No Hoo 514:

Yeah and if the little old cleaning lady is in there, time limit is up once she finally finishes her job until she FINALLY FREAKING LEAVES the facilities!

At least nowadays we have have smartphones, so if stuck in the stall you’ve got something to do.

Back then, they hadn’t been invented yet. Or even imagined by Steve Jobs yet, possibly.

@Pete 0618 What is with Asians and nudity, privacy and so on? They all seem to love to share communal hot-spring, spas, etc. My lady used to take me to the hot springs. There were the girls, all kneeling down in the shallow end, and the men all standing talking, down the deep end. I think my lady was indulging in a little “bragging rights” thing with her girlfriends, for she would take me over, and introduce me to them. That would set them off, all squealing and giggling, to my great embarrassment. So I would banish her to that… Read more »

@Yu No Hoo 446:

Brother you do NOT want to take a “tiny bath” in that tiny tub.

Pete

@Marum,

Bathing together?
With swimsuits I assume?
Let me guess: This was in a Chinese-speaking country?
In my experience both Japanese and Koreans don’t do mixed gender bathing.

In both Japan and S. Korea, naked spa bathing is same gender only, not mixed. Swimsuit wearing swimming pools are mixed, just like in the West.

@ Pete. Natural thermal pool, in thermal area Philippines. The high mineral content would make your swimming togs go funny, and change colour too. Wasn’t all that mixed. ladies one side men the other.

The waters were supposed to be therapeutic. Don’t know about that. They were so bloody hot, you couldn’t feel if any thing else was hurting. Yeeoooowwww. The locals must be made of asbestos.

Even though I’m comfortable in my body, I’ve never been one for nudist beaches here in Oz either.
Imagine the funny places one could get skin cancers. 😆

What the hell do you do with a squat toilet, if you have the trots. One’s boots would end up spray-painted.

Indeed.

And the cuffs of your pants also.

More sanitary my @$$.

A “shower of toilet?” Maybe they’re talking about those futuristic toilet-fountains.
