Osaka airport introduces canine comfort room, complete with pole
Osaka’s Itami airport is setting up a toilet area for travelling dogs, complete with a pole for them to cock a leg on.
The toilet, in a fenced-off yard outside the terminal, will also have a shower and water bowls. The "pee pole" will flush.
Designed to encourage dogs to relieve themselves before boarding domestic flights, it will be the first such canine comfort facility at a Japanese aiport.
Service dogs are permitted to use disabled-accessible toilets in the terminal but the mess must be cleaned up. (Reuters)
