How to use a Western toilet in Japan

Sign in the loo cubicle

On the way back from Osaka in the summer our bus stopped for a quick loo break at the service station. When I got into the loo cubicle I couldn’t stop laughing when I saw this resist this sign of how to use a Western toilet. I guess it’s aimed at the older Japanese generation who are used to using those awful squatters (I've written a post about those here). Who knows but I simply had to take a piccie.
So take note folks. When you come to Japan don't try and back dive off the toilet, ok?!


  1. Haha, I took the exact same photo. Who knows, it may have been the same rest stop :)

  2. Probably! I saw them everywhere on the route from Kanazawa.
