Welcome to the second ediition in a series I am calling “practical Japanese” where I share a photo or video showing hiragana, katakana or kanji being used in a practical everyday sense. The aim is to expand the vocabulary of fellow Japanese learners so they may get familiar with seeing and hopefully using simple Japanese that they will most likely encounter. One sure way to know you are in Japan? Your hotel room toilet has a remote controller… From my short stay at El Inn Kyoto.
