I have completed the bathroom for the ryokan. This is a very primitive bathroom, and Peggy has given a very good explanation of these toilets on her blog, so I'll let you go over there to read it, as well as see the little poster she has glued to the bathroom door showing how to use it.

The bathroom is going to be installed in this corner of the top floor hallway. The hallway isn't glued to the other rooms yet, so the bathroom is just standing where it belongs right now. I wanted to make sure I got photos before I close it all in, because you really won't be able to see much in there once everything is finished.

It was very interesting! When we were in Russia, we had the kind Peggy said they had in Germany. It was a little unnerving at first! In Russia, they have a room with just the toilet. Next to it is a door, and in that room are the sink and bathtub. Some of our friends there thought it was quite dirty to wash their hands and take a bath in the same room as a toilet. Of course when we were at the dacha, we had an outhouse. :-)

That German/Russian toilet was unique and would take some getting used to.  But it still seems better than the Japanese alternative.  Your Inn's toilet has a difficulty factor, lol!
