Just a little bit of extra customer service can change the whole experience both for the driver and the passenger.
If you’re traveling in Japan for the first time it might hit you as a surprise, but almost all taxis have a button that opens the doors, allowing the passenger to keep their hands free to hold their Zara bags.
Like many other gadgets only found in Japan, yet again, they have managed to take something simple, like a photo booth, and give it a spectacular upgrade.
Why settle for a standard photo with your friends when you can become whoever you want and turn into your favorite icon in the blink of an eye?
Slippers...for the Toilet
We actually think we might like to adopt this Japanese custom. These slippers are there to protect you from the unpleasant surprises that can confront you on the toilet floor, especially when having little boys around.
Now seriously, these can be found in most entertainment places in japan and are there to use when visiting the toilets. We love it.
Energy Drink Culture
As the Japanese are known for their never-ending working hours, the energy drink industry has become huge there. They can be found everywhere in any shade, color, or form.
They can be found even in drugstores and presented in medication bottles as if a tired worker is treated almost as a diseased person.
Facial masks have been worn by the Japanese people forever. This is not something that started in 2020. People wear masks on public transportation, whenever they don't feel good, or just trying to avoid the pollen season.
Over the years, mask etiquette has become part of the Japanese culture, and these days, it would be difficult to find anyone without one on their face.
