Hotel Toilet in Japan Asks You to Carry Your Used TP

first_img How AMC’s ‘The Terror’ Uses American History to Delive…33 Killed in Suspected Arson Attack on Kyoto Animation Studio in Japan Removing used toilet paper from a restroom is probably one of the last things you’d want to do, especially in a hotel. That’s why this weird Japanese translation is such a strange request. This Tokyo hotel’s instructions seem to suggest that you should “Please carry away the toilet paper to the restroom without putting it in a garbage can.”Uh, okay? So I’m supposed to take my toilet paper out of the restroom and put it in another restroom, but not put it in a garbage can there? Huh? SoraNews24 has the scoop on this weird translation, which isn’t exactly what it seems. First, this is simple a strange case of “Engrish” with some funny connotations. The picture isn’t actually telling you to take your toilet paper out of the bathroom with you and put it somewhere else, thank goodness. 驚いてはいけない!これが2018年東京のド真ん中の安くはないホテルの言語レベルです。幸いおいらは英語でなく日本語で読めたので正しくトイレを使うことが出来ました。多分。— hiroshi ono (@hiroshimilano) August 18, 2018Instead, it’s basically telling you not to put your toilet paper in the trash can, and instead to flush it as a normal person would. Apparently, there’s a lot of folks out there who like to stuff garbage cans with toilet paper, used or otherwise, and it was pertinent to put out this sign to keep people from doing just that. It’s pretty weird, yes, but people out there are strange, as you all know. It happens in public restrooms all the time: People just let trash cans overflow with disgusting toilet paper, even though it’s meant to be flushed. Bizarre.The translation is still pretty hilarious, even though we know that’s not exactly what it means in the first place. It’s a funny thought to consider, being asked to take your toilet paper from one room to another. At least you don’t have to worry too much since this is just a simple case of mistranslation. Still, though, it’s probably pretty confusing to guests who don’t know enough about the translation to mentally correct it!Japan is a fascinating country with weird and wonderful ongoings, like the Sailor Moon theme played on traditional Japanese instruments. They’ve even got a real-life Transformer that you can visit. And if you’re traveling there soon try Three Different Kinds of Alcoholic Cokes.
