TF Top 5……Public Toilet Designs In Tokyo! (Urine For A Treat!)

To celebrate the unofficial toilet day on November 10th in Japan I have decided to deposit a compilation of my favourite public lavatories in Tokyo. The Tokyo Fox site sure is plumbing to low depths but hopefully you will be bowel-ed over and end up thinking it’s an excrement idea!

Japan is such a backwards country at times when it comes to many things but if they put just half as much effort into those things as they do in coming up with toilet ideas then it really might help move the country more into the 21st century. Most of the toilets included here are of the modern variety which have become more common place in the Shibuya ward area in recent years.

To get to the bottom of the matter, November 10th is toilet day because the numbers 11/10 (for Japanese use the American way of writing the date) can be read in Japanese as ii to ire (いいといれ) which means good toilet (toire). This really is true and I am not taking the p*ss! Let’s not get too bogged down by such details though. It’s time to get this list out of my cistern and put a lid on the matter!

Warning: People of a sensitive nature had better not dare show their feces around here!

1. Yoyogi Fukamachi Mini Park @ 1-54-1 Tomigaya, Shibuya-ku.


2. Nanagō-Dōri Park @ 2-53-5 Hatagaya, Shinjuku-ku.


3. Nabeshima Shoto Park Toilets @2-10-7 Shoto, Shibuya-ku.


4. Oku Station @ 1 Shōwamachi, Kita-ku.

5. Umayabashi Public Toilet @ 2-15-9 Kuramae, Taito-ku.

Bonus: There are two interesting toilet blocks up in Saitama Prefecture, and they are both located in Fujimino with Kami Fukuoka on the Tobu Toju Line being the nearest station.

I sadly can’t even remember when or where this picture (below) was taken!
