公衆便所

Use the rikaichan popup dictionary or your favorite reference tool with my transcription below the photo if you need help reading these characters.

In addition to this usage, the characters  公衆 are also commonly used in the compound 公衆電話, though the widespread use of cellular phones has made 公衆電話 harder and harder to find for those of us who still occasionally rely on them!

The numbers below refer to the kanji I’ve transcribed below the photo, and correspond to their order of appearance in both Heisig’s Remembering the Kanji and Kanji in Context.
