One of my favorite things in Japan is the etiquette button on toilets. It used to be that only public toilets had these but now that toilets in the home have become so fancy they are a pretty standard feature anywhere. It is thought rude and embarrassing to have someone hear you tinkle when having a pee. So, Japanese women used to hold down the flush handle the whole time they were peeing to mask the sound. However, since it was thought of as a big waste of water, toilet manufactures came up with an electronic flushing sound button to push to hide the sound of pee. No matter how stressed out I am when I walk into a restroom and hear the sound of electronic flushing coming from behind the door it brings and huge and genuine smile to my face. Then I imagine a woman sitting on the toilet with her skirt up politely holding down the etiquette button as she tinkles and it makes my entire day.
