DaiTime Tokyo: Best Bathrooms On The Go

Takashimaya Times Square 12th Floor, HMV South-Woman's Bathroom

I'm always scouting the best bathrooms, to change clothes in, around Tokyo. If leaving from work, and planning on staying out all night or attending events where you can't get home to change, it is always good to know where to go. Most of the women here tote huge purses, rolling suitcases, and shopping bags . It's unfortunate to come across a bathroom stall without enough room for you to turn around in, or even fit your baggage. But there are locations made just right for the occassion of changing clothes, and doing hair and makeup when you don't need a hotel room or public bath.

The entrance to the bathroom on the 12th floor of the Takashimaya Times Square department store, South exit of shinjuku station, has a great view of the station and surrounding.


The bathrooms are large enough for a suitcase and there's a wall shelf for other items.

The stalls come equipped with a toilet seat disinfectant dispenser, heated seats, water sprayer, air freshener, and flush sound effects for the whole Japanese hi-tech toilet experience. Instructions are available in English!

There is no need to use the regular sinks to wash and re-apply makeup.

There is a separate section/powder room with chairs, mirrors, basins, and a full length mirror, just for getting yourself done up. All while over looking Shinjuku.

My New Apartment


I've lived in Tochigi for the past 2 years. I'm finally moving to the Tokyo area so I can get it crackin' in close proximity to everything!

I was concerned with my pack-rat like tendencies and how I was going to move all of my stuff from Tochigi to Tokyo. I used a UPS like courier called Kuro Neko Yamato (Black Cat Yamato), to transport my boxes. They came to assess the size and amount of my boxes a week before I moved.

I paid for a crate portion in their moving truck, and they planned a date, arrived and took all of my stuff out, held it at storage near where I was moving, then delivered it on my move in date. It wasn't expensive, but then again, I didn't have any real furniture to move.


My new apartment was semi-furnished, meaning included a fridge, washing machine, microwave, tv and tv stand, and a bed frame. I had to buy a 2 stove top gas range and a conventional oven. My apartment sized is a 2DK, meaning 2 rooms and a dining room/kitchen area.



The apartment came with this terrible bed frame and nothing else to put on it. They wouldn't keep it, and I was stuck with this frame taking up space, and I don't care to sleep this low to the floor. I had to find a sofa bed to cover it.


I live on the first floor, which I prefer, but this carpet all over-including the kitchen is not good, considering I always spill stuff. I'll see how long this lasts!
