It was dark upon arrival in Tokyo, and after an interesting trip from the airport, we got our first taste of the pretty much standard sized city budget hotel room. Stand with both arms outstretched and you're touching the opposite walls.

Bathroom? Turn sideways to get in  :worried:



And so began Bealman's three week fascination with Japanese toilets.....

Anyway, the next morning dawned sunny, and very warm. The hotel looks quite big from the outside.... until you realise that those windows define the width of your room!



Sort of like the Tardis in reverse  :uneasy:

We'll flush out the truth eventually.

On the toilet pictured, there is a small dark rectangle betwixt cover and hinge, which most likely some sort of sensor and therefore an indicator of additional functionality.

Let me introduce you to Unko Sensei ("Mr. Poop") and his course book for learning Japanese characters (also available as a rice topping).

And while we're at it, Detective Bottom Cheeks.

I think this is going to be a bottomless pit of innuendos!  :)

Indeed, "Detective Buttock-Face" is a regular fixture on Saturday morning kids' TV.
