Post navigation

Most of us think of Japan as a majestic place like it is in anime movies complete with beautiful cherry blossoms. However, actually visiting Japan reminds us how advanced they are in technology and how respectful the community is — so much so, that it puts the western world to shame.


Here at Meow GAG, we’ve decided to share pictures taken by tourists who visited Japan. They were as amazed to see these things as you’re about to be!

Some toilets in Japan have a button that plays white noise or water sounds so that people can feel comfortable going to the bathroom without other people hearing them.
