Accessibility in everyday life in Japan.

Mausan showed me these Japanese bottles and urged me to tell the shampoo bottle apart from the conditioner without looking at the labels.

Accessible shampoo

You can see that one of the bottle has raised markings. This tactile marking is used to differentiate between the shampoo (left) and the conditioner.

Markings on beer cans

Also, look at this can. The raised dots indicate that the content are alcoholic.

Milk carton markings

Here you see a cut on the left carton indicating milk.

Hong Kong taxi braille markings

Above image is not from Japan but yet another example of accessibility with Braille markings inside a taxi.
