Smart Inventions That Exist Only In Japan

Posted by Sughra Hafeez in Science and Technology On 9th July 2017

Everyone knows about Japan. From it’s crazy inventions to it’s even crazier game shows! Let’s talk about some crazy inventions from Japan. Generally, Japan has no shortage of all sorts of wacky creations and whether they’re actually useful or not was pretty irrelevant (we’re looking at you, selfie stick). Here though is a list that has 18 inventions that were thought of in Japan and nowhere else in the world! We’re not saying you’ll never find them in other countries later down the line but for now only Japan has got these!

#1 Train seats that rotate.

Have you ever sat on a train and wished you could turn the seat? Me, neither! But, it suddenly sounds like such a good idea! Now that I think about it I want all the trains I travel on to have seats that turn because who doesn’t want a good view of the countryside while they’re on a long journey?


#2 A motorcycle helmet with a ponytail hole

Helmet manufacturers have made helmets for girls before but no one has been so thoughtful as to put a hole in the back so girls can pull out their ponytails and avoid it getting all messed up when it’s pressed by the helmet.

This is how motorcycle helmet manufacturers care about ladies. It’s such a trifle, yet a pleasant one.

#3 A place to seat a baby in a public bathroom

The designers of the public bathrooms made an inspired decision to put a baby chair in every public bathroom so you don’t have to worry about a thing when you’re out and about with your little munchkin! All parents dream of such a thing, it’s a special place where you can seat your baby while you’re doing your business. If it’s just the two of you, it’s dangerous to leave the baby alone outside and uncomfortable to take them in with you.


#4 Anti-lonely cafe for lonely hearts!

If you feel awkward sitting alone in a cafe, this is an option for you. when you come without any company, the staff will place a soft toy in front of you. Now you’re not alone.

Coffee places in Japan have started putting large stuffed on an empty chair next to a solo coffee drinker! It helps them feel less lonely!
