Learn Japanese with JapanesePod101.com! If you will ever visit Japan, this is one episode of Miki’s blog you must hear! Did you know that Japan’s toilets are very different from those in the U.S.? In fact, some have lids that open and close automatically. As Miki explains, some of these toilets and the walls around them are covered with buttons. The instructions on the buttons are in Japanese; there is no English to be found. So, you might get stuck with no clue how to get the toilet seat up or how to flush the toilet!
That’s why this episode of Miki’s blog is so important. It’s full of funny facts about Japanese bathrooms. But, it also contains information you will need just to use the restroom in Japan! For example, you might not be able to operate the toilet if you don’t recognize the Otohime button! Everyone appreciates a little toilet humor, but this blog might save you some serious embarrassment!
