Tokyo, Part 2
Tokyo is packed. Like New York x10. But somehow the place is spotless. There are no trashcans yet no litter. The people here are obsessed with cleanliness. Even when you eat at a really cheap fast food place they give you a wet napkin to clean your hands. And forget about the bathrooms, the bathrooms here are amazing. I only encountered one bathroom that wasn't sparkling clean yet it was cleaner than the bathrooms at Saks. And this was at a fast food place in the middle of one of the busiest areas in Tokyo. Basically all the toilets have all these buttons that clean every part of your bottom region. Not just a bidet but a spray that cleans you after you do a 2. These toilet controls are located on the walls next to the toilet mostly. Apparently there are two types of flushes but I'm not sure what the difference is. Ann(my friend that's been there for 2 months) says she had to leave without flushing a couple of times cause she just couldn't figure out which button to push.
