15 things from Japan, which we lack for a comfortable life

We can say with confidence that Japan is a country for people! We found such interesting Japanese things that not only help foreigners to better understand life in Japan and the local mentality, but also make us want the same comfort for our country. See for yourself!

Roads with music

Life in Japan takes place with music: there are as many as three musical roads in the country - in Gumma Prefecture, on the island of Hokkaido, and in the city of Wakayama. When a car travels along such a road at a certain speed, it starts playing a song. These Japanese roads are not just fun for drivers, but also forced to observe a moderate speed limit, and also do not let tired drivers fall asleep on the road.

Automatic doors in a taxi

Have you ever been told by taxi drivers that you slammed the door too loudly? In Japan, you will not hear this, because there are such interesting things there,like self-closing doors in a taxi!

Convenient refueling

Another Japanese know-how is refueling with vertical fuel hoses. They hang right from the ceiling, which opens up access to the gas tank from either side - the hose will always reach it.

Japanese dressing

Umbrella holders

Cyclists also notice the advantages of living in Japan - thanks to the umbrella holder mounted on the handlebars of Japanese bicycles, you can choose not to abandon your favorite way of moving, even in rainy weather.

Drinks in banks for the blind

Life in Japan is good because here they are trying to make life easier for everyone, including blind people. For example, on all cans with drinks, the product name is necessarily duplicated in Braille.

Chair with notch for bag

Many Japanese chairs contain in their backs a special not too deep recess, thanks to which they have the ability to easily hang the bag, and it will not constantly roll down. How can we miss such a practical thing!

Snacks in supermarkets

Everywhere in Japan, there are the so-called “convenience store” - convenience stores, similar to small supermarkets.In the assortment of these stores are all sorts of products aimed at meeting any impulse purchase that a passing buyer is ready to make. Therefore, you can find everything in them: fruits, coffee, newspapers, nuts, sweets, pastries, cigarettes and, of course, such typical Japanese things as instant noodles briquettes. And most importantly - right in the store, you can make these noodles in a boiling water boiler nearby and eat them.

Big Mac with delivery

Another gastronomic plus, which gives life in Japan to all lovers of fast food - is the ability to order your favorite food from McDonalds directly to work or home. And to carry out all operations on the order and payment, you can use a special mobile application.

Cat cafe

Although more recently, similar cafes appeared in some Russian cities, but in the Land of the Rising Sun they are just a dime a dozen. Life in Japan and many Japanese things are already permeated with smiles, laughter, and the very “kavaynost”, but in cat cafés, the miloth just goes off scale!

Capsule hotels

If you need a lodging for the night and nothing more, then why overpay for additional functions in hotels? Here is what Japanese know-how is in the cities of the Land of the Rising Sun - these are capsule hotels, in whose “rooms” you can only take a horizontal position and, in fact, sleep as much as your heart desires.

Compact hotel

Foot baths in trains

Many of us know that when traveling by train, in our reserved seats, it is very difficult to relax. But in Japan, life in the suburbs of travelers is much more pleasant: right on the train, they can steam their feet in the hot tub, which will help them relieve tension.

Multifunctional toilet

Speaking about the Japanese things, many remember about their miracle-toilets. They have a lot of useful functions, including the ability to serve a person with disabilities, warm up the seat and perform self-cleaning.

Wonderful toilet

Economical sink

In some Japanese public toilets you can see an unusual sink, which is located above the tank. Is it not a brilliant decision: water after washing hands flows into the tank and then used when flushing - what a saving!

Sleep at work

And after this point you will definitely understand all the advantages of life in Japan, because there it is allowed to sleep in the workplace! This practice is called "Inemuri", that is, "presence during sleep." In Japan, people work a lot, so if a person is sleepy in an office, then he has the right to take a nap - but not lying, but sitting at the table, that is, as if he continues to work. The truth is, it is impossible to do this in front of people who are superior in status or social status - contrary to general error, it will not be possible to sleep right next to the boss.

Sleep while working

Loudspeaker system

And finally, we want to mention the speaker system, which is installed throughout the country. It greatly simplifies the lives of ordinary people because it reports all dangerous and emergency situations, for example, natural disasters: tsunamis, earthquakes. In a quiet time, these loudspeakers just come to music, and in the evenings there are announcements - for example, children are told that it is already late and you have to go home.

Alert system

Do you know that in Japan, politicians themselves resign if they could not fulfill their election promises? And that foreigners living in Japan make up less than 2% of the total population? Find out more about the Japanese from the video:
