Toilet Butler

ToiletBoard

Madame, your toilet is served!

When you’ve finally made it to the head of the line in the ladies room at Maihama Station, this nifty light-up board discreetly tells you which stall to run to, the very instant it’s free. Not only that, easy-to-understand diagrams inform you which style is available: Japanese or Western.
