Let me see your photos taken in Japan

Could you show me your photos taken in Japan if you don’t mind? Last month, I gave the request to many travelers who were around Asakusa in Tokyo, and some kind people showed me their nice photos in fact. Among these, I’d like to introduce especially interesting or weird ones for Japanese people.


Have you ever taken a photo of a toilet?

First, I excluded typical photos of food, architectures, or spots that most of travelers seem to be interested in like Ramen, Tokyo Skytree, or Harajuku. Then, I chose some photos that I couldn’t understand why they took just normal things from Japanese viewpoints. Actually, asking those reasons was the most interesting through this casual survey.


Washlet is a typical Japanese toilet with water spray feature for genital and anal cleansing. Even once people experience the comfort, most of them can’t help using again very soon.

Melon soda

 Melon soda is a classic sweet soda colored to vivid green to express a melon. It sometimes has vanilla ice cream and cherry on the top to be a sort of dessert.

Food sample

Food samples, sometimes called Fake food, are essential ornaments displayed in a glass showcase near the entrance of Japanese restaurants. The workmanship is too perfect to distinguish genuine ones.

Ticket-vending machine

Ticket-vending machine is sometimes provided in Japanese restaurants for making efficient. You need to buy the tickets that you wanna eat at first, then hand over it to a clerk.

How did you feel these photos? According to real experiences of the travelers, washlet is the most surprising and impressing with the functions after using it. I’d like you to experience the great ecstasy of the splash in practice one day.

Lastly, I’d like to say many thanks again for travelers who gently accepted my sudden request in Asakusa. If you have plan to visit Japan in the near future, I’m looking forward to seeing your photos through this blog or SNS. Thanks a lot for reading to the end.
