You can easily find books on learning about Japanese culture for foreigners who visit or live in Japan. But, you hardly find books which deal with the Japanese toilet. Liken in these pictures, both Japanese and western-style toilets are available in Japan, and more and more western-style toilets are available now. However, many public bathrooms still have Japanese-style toilets. So, many foreigners confuse and wonder how to use them, especially which direction they should face when using them. Some of them turn around and with their backs towards the toilet and its plumbing. But, that is wrong. Always look at the toilet when you are using them. You just have to get used to it. You can try it for fun, but be careful having too much fun. You might get off balance and turn over.
