Toilet Facilities

In Japan one needs to make careful distinctions between rooms used for different purposes which in a North American home would all be found in the washroom or bathroom. In Japan a bathroom or "ohuro" is used only for bathing. The room where you make yourself presentable in the morning is frequently part of the laundry room. The toilet is a tiny room all by itself.
Anyway Satomi Furuki was very proud to take us to what may be one of the fanciest toilets in Japan, bird songs, Japanese garden and decorated. We were taken off guard and did not get proper photographs to do this place justice.
