    Sorry for my attempt at humor here, but isn't the right hand button for playing "Packman"? Oh, darn, it can't be (because there's no 'joystick" in the "c" for directing "Packman" around the maze).

    The one with the note is to disable the Vehicle Proximity Notification System

    The "Nanoe" one is some sort of air purifier.

    Looks like the "nanoe" button is for playing Pacman. :D

    OP, did you not receive a manual that's localized/translated for your region?

    The switch with the musical note is for a pedestrian alert sound. This is similar to the Vehicle Proximity Notification System (VPNS) on the US market Prius. When turned on, a sound is emitted when the vehicle is driven below 25km/h and the gasoline engine is off.
    Nano-E appears to be something like a negative ion generator, adding negative ions to the air conditioning outlet air. Panasonic describes it as "Nano-sized electrostatic atomized water particles, nanoe™, that improve air quality".
    Here is a link to the Panasonic Web site describing their system:
    Nano-sized electrostatic atomized water particles,nanoe™, that improve air quality | Technology | About Panasonic | Panasonic Global
    On the US market Prius Liftback Five, there is a similar device installed in the driver's A/C duct made by Sharp, called Plasmacluster. The US version does not have an on/off switch, it always turns on when the fan is on.
