Ahh, so there is some use for foreigners after all lol!

The flux in tourism has had a POSITIVE impact on the industry (money money money) because toilet paper and butts don’t discriminate who’s who when it actually comes time to get down and dirty and do business.

Lets all cooperate more.

Very wasteful plastic packaging. When will they switch to a more environmentally-responsible approach? I am waiting and hoping that Who Gives A Crap will get to Japan soon - they are available in the UK, US, and Australia.

Also Costco changed from using domestic manufactures instead of overseas ones.

What about the Toto and other washlet toilets?  They were supposed to save paper.

Pretty sad state of affairs when it comes to that to find equality and no discrimination..

Agree. The next time we are in a public toilet reach out to the person in the next stall and offer to wipe their butt

very appropriate- considering we are talking about toilet paper...

They do when people use them. I try to avoid using toilets unless equipped with washlets..

@gogo - I mean the plastic wrapping they come in. The only paper-wrapped toilet rolls on sale are the ones that come in boxes of 1 hundred for public buildings. I try not to buy anything with single-use plastic wrapping, though in Japan it can drive a body mad with the effort.
