Sometimes you find yourself in a public restroom in Tokyo that doesn't have any toilet paper. It happens. Usually by the time you are inside the stall and realize that there's nothing to wipe with, it's too late to run out of the stall and fork over 100 yen for tissue paper out of a machine. Especially when the machine is located outside of the restroom itself, as seen here. That's when I pull a Bukowski ala Factotum and use my shorts instead and clog the toilet.

Rinse and repeat

Gargling is a popular pastime in Japan. This restroom even has a "gargle device" installed.
