Although I'm waiting to see how he feels this afternoon, I'm thinking our plans for today are doomed too (there's a festival in Kin Town with fireworks tonight). Since we're staying home, I'll do the domestic thing and finally finish the second half of the bathroom post.
As I posted before in part 1, the typical Japanese house has separate rooms for the bath and the toilet. In America, this would be counted as a half bath, but here it's bigger than some of the closet-sized water closets I've used.

And the best part of our bathroom: the amazing toilet!

Another common feature that our toilet doesn't have is a handle with a big and little (大 and 小) flush feature to conserve water.
Slightly related, one of my favorite features about Japanese public toilets: the child seat! I've seen several different styles, the one below is from the Okinawa Zoo. Absolutely love not having to do the balance the baby while trying to pull up my pants dance routine.
