Kawh - Yes, bathrooms are another benefit of McDonalds but one of the many wonderful things about Japan was the number of public toilets available everywhere (and they were always clean, well-stocked, well lit and free). I encourage you to be more adventurous about food than I was, but also bring a stash of your favorite protein bars and pre-packaged peanut butter crackers! Oh, my other helpful tip which may have gotten lost in all my details above is to bring a bandana or light cotton scarf that you can use to dry your hands in public bathrooms; very few have towel dispensers or hand dryers; i noticed a lot of Japanese women of all ages using their own scarf. A small thing but nice to be "in the know" and not have wet hands. Enjoy your trip!
