Where is the Dog Toilet? (in Tokyo)

According to a survey which Tokyo Metropolitan Government Bureau of Social Welfare and Public Health conducted in Tokyo during 2011-2012, 33% of dogs have their own dedicated toilets/potties, 65% of dogs excrete (poop) outdoors.

Generally it is recommended to pick up dog poops and not to leave them on the street. 

91% of owners always clean up them. 

Sometimes I actually see dog poops on the street. Some do not clean up.
