Geishas and Samurais

After a few bottles of hot sake at Guu Gastown I stumbled upon a pleasant surprise at the threshold of the powder room. There were no metallic labels or stick figures distinguishing¬† the men’s from the women’s (which, to my amusement, was haphazardly removed here). Instead, the doors were adorned with a paper fan of a geisha and another of a samurai. Smart. A simple touch.

And while the bathrooms at Guu aren’t necessarily fit for military nobility or graceful courtesans, it is refreshing to find creativity in the small details of decor.
