Walking through a main train station in Tokyo as locals made their way to work it struck me that they all wear coats of drab color – black, brown, beige. Youth will sport a flash of color, though.
Toilets have sprays to clean the butt. Some have heated seats. Japanese and Western style toilets are in most public bathrooms. If you need a Western style and there isn’t one in the main bathroom then use the handicapped stall which may be separate so any sex can use it.
Restaurants hand out warm moist cloth towels when customers first sit down. One hotel greeted us with them and packaged disposable ones were given out in the first class section of high speed trains.
Everyone waits in line quietly with plenty of space between themselves in the indicated areas while waiting for public transportation, ascending the stairs and escalators, hotel reception, stores, crosswalks, etc. No pushing or rushing past someone. They stay to the left on escalators usually, and leave the right side for those who need to keep moving at a faster rate.
Japanese people are humble, helpful, and always pleasant.
Hotel bathrooms provide toothbrushes with a tiny tube of toothpaste, razors, foldable plastic hairbrushes, and dispensers with soap and shampoo.
Most hotels offer eco-cleaning. In exchange for no linen change they gift a bottle of water. They may or may not swap,out towels.
Priority seating on trains is rarely left or given up to those for whom it is intended without asking.
Any litter is something dropped unknowingly yet trash cans are impossible to find. An exception is Hiroshima which also had park benches. Tokyo and Kyoto did not have any resting spots.
Food is expensive. A cup of tea is about four dollars.
