3. Don’t Queue for the Next Stall
In the western world, we usually form a line to wait for the next available stall in a public restroom. It’s considered the fair way – first come, first served. The queuing system is a little different in Japan. Each person stands in front of a random cubicle and uses it whenever it becomes free, regardless if someone else has been waiting longer. This can seem kind of frustrating if you’re desperate to go and you happen to choose a door with a slowpoke in it, but that’s the luck-of-the-draw local convention. You could call it a crap shoot.
