  1. I live there for 2 years and it's amazing that weird place.
    1) I saw a toilet you talked about with the water coming up for the bottom. Funny it was like sitting in Captain Kirk's chair. There was a button for the bidet, a blow dryer, what we called the enema but the oddet thing was that it had a remote control …
    2) I love the toilet slippers but some other things that I saw there that I haven't seen in other countries were they had a terrycloth wrap to put around the toilet seats. In traditional Japanese homes the toilet area in the front part of the house before the storm door or just generally cold so that was a nice way not to sit on a cold seat.
    3) Also they had noisemakers like the sound of running water to mask the sound of you using the facilities.
    4) The beer vending machines carried out to a pony keg size that I saw was as small as an 8oz which had grapes or other fruit at the bottom. Horrible joke to play on a friend after going out drinking all night.
    5) Love hotels! See the book "Pink Samurai".

  2. In the late 80’s we were walking back from Narita town and found a beer vending machine. It was in the middle of nowhere except in a cabbage field. Unfortunately it locked at 2am since we were all buzzed we tried to make it work and it wouldn’t but it was funny and a great memory.

  3. I lived in Japan in the mid-'80s and I laughed when you mentioned vending machines. There were some by the bus stop that sold sodas, roman, beer and yes, cigarettes! I also remember the Japanese preoccupation with sex. It isn't as taboo as it is here. There are key chains, knick-knacks and "popsicle" stick type of things in the shape of the male {clearing the throat}. I remember buying a keychain that had two parts, one was a boy and the other was a girl… well… it "rocked" back and forth as if the boy and girl were having sex. They even have festivals celebrating the "male form" if you get what I mean! It was a VERY fascinating place to be for a boy at the beginning of puberty! LOL!!

  4. Japanese mayonnaise is practically the same as the original French mayonnaise, which is much better than the American one, and is, e.g., widely sold here in Malaysia. And mayonnaise on ice cream? I've never seen that in Japan! And when you say pancakes, you probably mean okonomiyaki, which looks like pancakes, but is quite different! Suntory whiskey is indeed wonderful stuff – just last week I got a bottle from our youngest son, visiting us from Japan.

  5. I was in Japan a few times. The thing I surprised me was the lady bathroom cleaner. I was in the bathroom for the guys doing my business at the urinal and this lady cleaner walks up and starts cleaning the urinal I'm at. A little surprising to say the least

  6. #4 – You should go to the Netherlands and check out some of the Bike parking areas there if you really want to be impressed! Talk about multi-story parking for bikes is a norm in most large cities!
