this is where I dry my hands

There's no paper towel in any Japanese public bathroom that I've been in. Instead, they have these great powerful machines that are Off until you put your hands in them. Then you pull them up amidst super gushes of air. Up and down, until your hands are dry. Good system.

Of course it's also hard to find a trash can in a bathroom sometimes too - I don't know why!

What we did while in Japan is carry a small towel. We carried it with us wherever we went.

I first discovered one of these last year. I got such a shock I nearly crapped my pants again.
