Chinese Hotel Features Urinals Shaped Like Japanese Soldiers’ Mouths
The Shanghaiist reports on a bathroom in China that lets men urinate in the mouths of Japanese soldiers:
“These controversial urinals, depicting kneeling Japanese soldiers with their mouths open wide, were recently snapped and posted on Weibo. Located in a Harbin hotel, they have been dubbed 靖国神厕, a reference to the Yasukuni Shrine in Japan.”
Although the blog post does not say so, the urinals look similar to characters from “Devil soldiers in Mao-er Mountain” (帽兒山的鬼子兵), a children’s cartoon that aired on China’s CCTV. The hotel with the strange urinals is located in Heilongjiang province, which also happens to be the setting for the cartoon.
The cartoon featured a theme song about torturing Japanese “devil soldiers” to death:
I irritate the devil soldiers
I playfully torture the devil soldiers
I play and irritate, with hits and kicks
I spoof / torture the devil soldiers to death!
