In the novel Midnight Express, the author SAWAKI Kotaro wrote “when I finally learned how to use my hand instead of toilet paper in the bathroom, I felt I had added another layer to my freedom.”

During my travel through four countries in Asia such as Thai, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, visiting the homes of my friends, I found out what he meant. The toilets in most of the homes had no toilet paper. I didn’t know what to do as first, but these were my friends’ homes. So I asked them about what to do, and I tried. It was fine! Stay at a regular house in an unfamiliar country, eat meals that ordinary people eat, and see how they live.
