With a population of approximately 126 million, and a population density of 901 people per square mile, Japan is a fairly populous place. One factor that may make life there feel a little less crowded is the size of the average Japanese person, with men averaging around 171.4cm tall, and women at 158.5cm. The country is, naturally, built to accommodate a population that is shorter than much of the world, and, as such, the result of traveling to Japan when you are of above-average height can have amusing, if not painful, results. You should consider increasing your travel insurance coverage if you go there 😉
Rise and Shine
In what appears to be a hotel room, this guest clearly needs to stoop down fairly low in order to reach the basin to wash her face. The bathtub and toilet also seem to be much lower-down than one might usually expect, and the height of the sink is considerably lower than the guest’s waist- perhaps this guest felt like something of a giant in her room!
