Toilet controls on my Japanese toilet

Toilet controls on my Japanese toilet

My new ability to read hirigana means I’ve been able to decipher, for the first time, the instructions to my hotel toilet in Tokyo last year.

The middle row in the photo has the hirigana おしり: O – Shi – Ri. Now I don’t speak much Japanese yet so I did have to look up oshiri. And it means… bottom.

That figures.
