The Japanese know how to enjoy not only unique coffee shop experiences but also a proper bathroom break.
Japan is so tidy that its toilets are notorious for being the most sophisticated in the world. Japanese toilets are wonders of technological innovation, combining hi-tech toilets with all kinds of features for a unique experience every time you need to go.
Square watermelons were originally grown to fit more compactly in small spaces and were also thought to be easier to cut, but since they’ve entered the market, they've boomed in demand and are now considered decorative pieces that can set you back as much as $200!
Their shapes don't stop at squares though, Japanese farmers use special containers to grow triangular or heart-shaped watermelons.
Strange and Confusing Game Shows
To the rest of the world, Japanese game shows are certainly a far cry from programs like "Jeopardy" and "Pyramid." Known for being a technicolored whirlwind of blind soccer and dinosaur pranks, any reasonable person would doubt their incredibly weird take on game shows.
One game show called "Candy or No Candy" has contestants who have to guess which ordinary items are edible. The only way they can find out is by biting into each individual object.
The Rent-A-Cuddle Cafe
Cuddle cafes became a booming business in Tokyo. The concept is simple, paying customers can snuggle with a "cuddler" for a fee.
With admission to the cafe costing at least $25, lonely hearts can settle for a 20-minute cuddle buddy at $40. A heftier fee of $400 will allow you 10 hours worth of cuddling time.
Vending machines are found all over the world as the perfect device for serving snack foods and commercial drinks, but Japan has taken it one step further, stirring up a brave new platter of automated excitement that goes well beyond chips and soda.
From buying underpants to a ready-made bowl of Ramen, Japan's vending machines quite literally take the convenience aspect of vending machines to a whole other tier.
