Shinjuku, Tokyo. Sign standing in front of a public toilet in a train station: Please note that this toilet is currently getting cleaned by a female attendant. Next to the text, there is an illustrated picture of a woman in work clothes slightly bowing. While this photograph was taken in front of the men’s toilet, there was the same sign standing in front of the women’s toilet.
A short note on content: So far, all the pictures I posted were taken by me. As I am currently living in Japan, this is also the reason for most of the content being Japan-related. I try to post photographs I took during visits in China from time to time in order to keep the promise I made with the name of the tumblr, though.
I hope you’re not disappointed by this uneven distribution of China-/Japan-related content. If all goes well, I’ll move to China in the near future…therefore, the content will make a shift into that direction anyway.
Setagaya, Tokyo. Poster in a train station currently under construction, guiding people towards the closest public restrooms. Next to photographs and maps of the location of the restrooms, it has several pictures of a “cute” (well, I suppose it’s supposed to be cute) mole/construction worker hybrid on it, offering advise such as that “there is a large multi-purpose toilet on the 3rd underground floor that is equipped with diaper changing units in both the men’s and women’s toilets” or “once the construction is finished there will be a spacious and comfortable restroom on the ground floor”.
