Travelling with the cup

I've travelled with my period before, and with the addition of my awesome DivaCup, it's been pretty easy. However, next month I'm heading to Japan, and if by some miracle my period comes when it's supposed to (it's always been really irregular), I'll have it while I'm there. With my cup, it probably won't be too much of a problem, but I've heard bad things about the bathrooms in Japan-- either there's just a hole in the ground, or the toilets are bizarre and complicated, plus the fact that some bathrooms don't have sinks or even toilet paper. I've never been to Japan so I have no idea if any of this is true, but if it is, well, it's going to make my life kind of difficult. Does anyone have any experience with this? Also, what about the 14-hour plane ride? I really, really don't want to risk cleaning my cup while we're in flight. All advice appreciated!
