Haha all right...the squat toilets are very common in many Asian countries and are used to efficiency so to speak. Some Westerners have difficulty at first, but they are actually very easy to use provided you have normal strength(probably not the best during a flare). They even have sections in some of books on Japan devoted solely to the 'art' of using them.
As for traveling far away..I can't really think of much except make sure you have extra medication, toilet paper, and planning for where and what you will eat.
I hope you have a great time! It sounds pretty exciting. Maybe I can fit in your suitcase?
