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.
