20 Things You Can Only See in Japan (Even If You Travel the Whole World)

BRIGHT SIDE

Elements from Japanese culture are in our lives right now: many people watch anime and Japanese TV series, they eat wok and sushi, and they listen to songs by Japanese singers. And even such a seemingly ordinary thing as karaoke actually originated in Japan. However, there are still some things that can only be seen in the Land of the Rising Sun.

Really, Japan is a unique country, different from the rest of the world. Wanna have Pringles soup when in Japan? Here you go. In the mood for dinner with a huge plush Moomin in a Japanese cafe? Not a problem at all. Here are some cultural things can’t be seen anywhere but in Japan.

SUMMARY:
– Most people know that a sure sign they CAN cross the road is the little, lit-up green man, right? Well, not in Japan! There, you should wait for a green rabbit called Miffy.
– In Japan, they grow square watermelons. Nope, it’s not a slip of the tongue. In Kagawa prefecture, they produce a couple hundred square watermelons a year.
– When you buy Pringles in Japan, you don’t get a tube of potato chips; you get noodles!
– In Japan, if you come to a cafe alone, you get a massive plush Moomin as your lunch companion so that you don’t feel sad!
– A Holiday meal means tons of tasty food and, of course, a big roast turkey! But if you ever celebrate the Holidays while in Japan, don’t get surprised to be treated with KFC instead of more traditional food.
– In the Ginza district of Tokyo, there’s an unusual stationery store which rises 12 floors!
– There are more than 50 million vending machines in Japan, and that means they’re literally everywhere!
– If you’re in Japan and wondering what souvenirs you can get for your family and friends, try Japan-limited Kit-Kats!
– Suffering from the cold in the winter? Just get yourself one of these one-use pocket-heaters that are so popular in Japan! It’s called kairo, and nowadays, you just need to open it for the chemical reaction to begin.
– Do you love unusual forms of art? Then how about rice paddy art? People plant rice of different colors and types to create breathtaking images in paddy fields.
– Imagine returning home after a long and crazy day at work. The Japanese have found a solution for this problem – and that’s a subway chin rest!
