I have just come back from a month in Japan, travelling through Tokyo, Takayama, Kanazawa, Osaka and Kyoto, mainly in tourist sites. There was toilet paper in every western style toilet except one at the Heian shrine in Kyoto which had a vending machine selling toilet paper right outside.

Buy new underwear for as little as 1 or 2 dollars. I'm not suggesting "waste money", but you must be spending some amount of money X on this adventure. (As others have pointed out, net access is hardly free.) It's extremely unlikely the low cost of underwear would be a significant portion of the overall cost. Also, as others have pointed out (eg, Do ...

If you have a couple of shorts with different length with you, you can use the shortest pair as underwear. Or even better, use swimwear - at least that dries quicker after washing them. There's also: - Ask a friend - Ask a teacher - Ask a random stranger Personally I'd just wash them, you might need to improvise with soap or shampoo. It's what I do on ...

You're at football camp? Someone else brought extra underwear. Barter for them.

In London, at least, it is a security issue. On 18 Feb 1991, an IRA bomb exploded in a bin in Victoria Station, killing one person and injuring 38. As the Wikipedia article on bombings during the Troubles goes on to note: Since that time, there have been no litter bins anywhere on the station platform. However, as The Londonist noted in 2011, ...

At least in Germany, I don't think security is an issue. Although it actually is uncommon to find waste bins in means of transport for shorter distances, you will find waste bins in most, if not all, regional and long distance trains or inter-city buses. I would rather assume that it is simply so tedious and/or time consuming to empty the waste bins, that ...

Inspired by the same-day delivery answer, I remembered there's a service called "Magic" where you basically text them what you want and they quote a price: We have trained operators standing by 24/7 to answer every one of your requests. Send us a text message, and we'll get you what you want. We'll order what you need from the appropriate service (e.g. ...

I'm assuming you're at the 2015 BC Football High School Camp (Session II) - (quick Google search). Funny they did not list underwear in the Things to Bring section. On this page it mentions a Camp Store. Talk to someone at the store to see if they can pick some up for you. If money is an issue, have them contact someone (parent) who can figure that part out. ...

I'm surprised that nobody mentioned the infamous "flip them around" technique. Arguably you can use one pair of boxers for four days if you flip them inside out and front to back. Indeed boxers, and tighty-whities, have two degrees of freedom which produce four possible rotations. This doesn't really work with thongs due to the difference in surface area ...

Wash them in the sink before you sleep, let them dry as much as possible until the morning, if they are not dry by then, iron them a bit and they will be dry. If you can't get a hold of an iron, then put them in front of the A/C or the heater, do not block the airway totally, just let the air pass through the boxers and it will make them dry in no time.

A basic conversion shows that one U.S. ounce converts to 1.8 cubic inches, so you can get up to three brushings from each ounce of toothpaste. For a travel size toothpaste with 3.4 ounces in the tube, that means you can expect to get 9 to 10 brushings. Depending on how many times you brush each day, it's fairly simple to determine how long it will last you ...

Yes, it's much more than a week if you used pea-sized amount of toothpaste twice a day so, I don't think so it's gonna be finished in 2 weeks. In my opinion if you buy 5g weight of toothpaste for your trip which is for a week and you brushed twice a day, it is good for you...... Otherwise, good luck for your trip

From my research, I was able to deduce that if used a pea-sized amount (0.01 ounces or 1/16 of a teaspoon) twice a day, travel-sized toothpaste would not only last me the week but it would go even further and last 28 days! Who knew a tiny little thing could last almost a month?? Let me know if any of you guys have had any personal experiences with this. I ...

I am allergic to all detergents except Cheer. Not sure what it is that makes me react with the rest but, I have found that Cheer doesnt hurt me. So, if you are still at a loss it may be worth a try.

What I experienced is, that you mostly have toilet paper in the Kanto-Area, but there are many public toilets in the Kansai-Area lacking toilet paper. A friend from Kansai can confirm this fact, too. Maybe, thats why it's written down in a travel guide like Lonely Planet.

It's common in public toilets, yes, especially those located in unattended locations such as public parks and small train stations. On the other hand, toilets in stores such as convenience stores or shopping malls, or in large train stations, virtually always have paper (you may even get lucky and have a "washlet"). A related and somewhat more common issue ...

There are paid toilet and shower facilities located in the basement of munich central station. The service is provided by the private company Mc Clean and costs around 7€ for a shower including towel and a selection of soaps. Opening hours are daily from 6am to 12pm.

The City of Munich operates a number of indoor (and outdoor) swimming pools in and around Munich. These pools are invariably fitted out with changing rooms and showers. There is no need to go swimming if you only want to use the shower, but you will still have to pay the entrance fee. You can peruse a list at Statwerke Muenchen. As for 'reasonable fee', ...
