Typically when exploring haikyo, or abandoned Japanese ruins and rare spots, popular locations include spooky areas like submerged villages, endless temple roads, and even Game Boy mail boxes.

Twitter user Aosuke (@aosuke32) visited Ishirouzaki, located at the southernmost tip of the Izu Peninsula in Shizuoka Prefecture, and was treated to a different type of haikyo--the ruins of what many are calling the "too open toilet"!

"Amazing! There was Japanese-style toilet on the cliff at Ishirouzaki. I doubt it's being used..."

A closer look at the toilet bowl reveals that it is a dyed old ceramic toilet. Japanese-style toilets with this kind of decoration were manufactured mainly during the Meiji period. Asking the nearby Ishimuro Shrine, not too far from the spot, it appears that the toilet was originally prepared for a visit by Emperor Showa. The toilet was never used, but the gravel path around the shrine was prepared so that the Emperor Showa's car could pass through.

Originally an enclosed structure, the restroom was opened due to damage caused by the elements, possibly a typhoon.

The result is an incredibly open restroom that faces the ocean, and one where it may be a bit too awkward to handle your business.
