Heidi sends this useful toilet tip:
Here is a Nihon Hack that some people may not know (if it hasn’t been posted yet). Living in Japan, one difficulty I have found is finding easy access to western style toliets. Sometimes you can end up in line waiting for a long time, or be unfortunate enough to not find a bathroom at all. the best soultion to this problem is the ever amazing convienience store (conbini)! Usually there is a clean, western style bathroom in most of your major name brand conbini’s like Lawson’s or 7/11. This has been a real life savor in busy places like Osaka!
This is pretty true. They are usually much cleaner than station toilets, and not a far walk from most stations.
And in case you didn’t know:
Also, some other good points about conbini’s is that if you have any bills to pay at all, like gas, electric, phone, or anything else, you can usually pay it at the conbini. This even includes purchases from amazon.co.jp!
Hope that helps!
It does! I often pay bills, especially shipping/handling bills, at the conbini. You should too!
