Foreigners who have to use the restroom at Narita Airport, but find only the Japanese squatting kind of toilet available, can now rest easier.

The airport is undertaking a project to get rid of the squatters.

According to the Asahi Shimbun:
NARITA, Chiba Prefecture--Narita Airport is spending 5 billion yen ($45.76 million) to replace its 147 toilet facilities with cleaner, more comfortable ones in the run-up to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics. 
The airport operator has begun remodeling the restrooms to provide a warm welcome for visitors who intend to watch the Games. 
Difficult-to-use traditional squat toilets will be replaced with Western-style ones, and all toilets will be equipped with the warm water bidet feature. 
The remodeling work will be complete by March 2020.
