Japanese people are creative and they are not shy about it. Imagine going through the town and then setting your eyes on a movie poster – made on a rice paddy field. Yes, farmers of Japan plant different colours of rice so that in harvest season you can see your favourite stars pop up in them.

4. Waterpark indoor
Waterparks are special and we all love it. Japan is famous for its waterparks. But there’s a Japanese twist – they have an indoor waterpark with a dome shape that can cover the sun. Now you can enjoy the water without feeling the heat.

There are all kinds of toilets in the world, but Japan brings in an ultra-tech toilet for them. A commode which lights up. It’s really a unique design.

It’s difficult to always carry the baby around, especially in malls when you have the urgent need to visit the toilet. Japan has the solution for you. They have set up a baby holder where you can keep your baby, secured, safe and sound and get you loo-work completed.

You do not have to face the rude behaviour of the hotel staff or pay extra tips – Japan has worked hard and now you can talk and have your names registered by a lifelike robotic staff. They work fast, is always kind and don’t frown at you when you don’t tip them!

Japan seems to have a vending machine for everything. Stuck in the rain? Japan has the right solution, you can easily get an umbrella from the vending machine. Just pick it up and brave the rain – you don’t have to worry about catching a cold anymore.
10. Smart Bra
Japan can help you find true love now, with the help of a high-tech bra. It monitors your heartbeat and unlocks the bra whenever your true love is in front of you. And if any stranger tries to get handsy, they will have a tough time at the police station with signals informing the police everything.
It’s a land of developers and uniqueness. Japan is a world, several leagues, ahead of us. They take their skill and technology seriously. It’s inspirational – we could learn a lot from them.
