10 Crazy Things Only Possible in Japan

Intro: Japan is known for being one of the most technologically advanced nations in the world. The island’s isolation has motivated it to innovate and become self sustaining. But sometimes, the country’s creativeness and futuristic thinking goes a bit too far, leaving behind things that people from Western world find anything from weird to shocking. If you plan on visiting this amazing country, check out these 10 crazy things that are only possible in Japan.

10) Fang Surgery

In the western world, crooked teeth are seen as imperfections that garner the use of braces or retainers to fix. But in Japan, artificial canine teeth that look like fangs, called “yaeba”, are becoming a popular new trend among young women. This is due to the fact that celebrities in Japan have popularized crooked teeth into a fashion statement, giving them what’s considered a childlike cuteness. A dental clinic actually gave birth to the world’s first snaggletooth group, TYB48. Why the band’s name sounds like killer robots I don’t know. The procedure involves gluing temporary or permanent edges to a patient’s canine teeth, giving them a more, “vampirey”, look. I guess having normal canine teeth would make them too much like werewolves.

9) Square Watermelons

Square watermelons are the coolest thing ever. Just look at them; I don’t know why they aren’t in Minecraft yet. In the 80’s, a farmer from Japan envisioned growing cube shaped watermelon, so that they could be easily packed and stored. To make this happen, he grew a watermelon within a glass box, and it naturally assumed the shape. Talk about simple genius! These watermelons are rare and pricey however, with them ranging in price from $80 to $800 for the best shaped melon. It’s difficult to harvest the watermelons while they’re ripe, so most are used for ornamental display instead of being eaten. If you’re going to spend that much on something, you might as well make it last. Other shapes that watermelons are fit into are hearts and pyramids. Imagine a watermelon trapezoid. Would that even work?

8) Random Vending Machines
Vending machines on a school or campus are too limited, they all have the same junk in them. So why not get your meal from a live lobster vending machine instead? Not only does Japan have vending machines for lobsters, but they also have machines for sneakers, umbrellas, eggs, hamburgers, and of course, condoms! The reason for the widespread use of vending machines is because Japan’s lifestyle is a fats paced, work centered one. The idea is you can save time by getting something you need from a machine, without having to wait on a line or search for it in a store. No matter where you go in Japan, it’s likely your going to find a vending machine, and it’s going to have something in it you wouldn’t expect.

7) Lonely Pillows
Marketed towards lonely men and women who are traveling away from loved ones or are just plain lonely, the dismembered pillows of Japan are becoming a popular thing to buy. Lonely pillows feature a woman’s torso and legs to lay on, or half a man’s body with an arm to wrap yourself around. Whichever one you chose, the purpose of the product is that whether you’re lonely or tired, you have someone to lean on. Why someone wouldn’t want to settle for a cheaper travel pillow, I don’t know, but it seems this product is also the result of Japanese intense work culture. It’s kind of sad, really. But not as tragic as the next thing on the list.

8) Suicide Forest
Japan’s suicide forest, or “Sea of Trees” as locals call it, is a 13 mile forest north of the beautiful Mount Fuji. It’s one of the most popular places to commit suicide in the world, with an estimated 100 deaths per year. A Japanese novel in the 1960’s, featuring a young lover whose fate ends in the forest, created the idea that people could go there to end their lives. Another book frequently found among the deceased calls the forest, “the perfect place to die”. The popularity of this destination led to the formation of prevention patrollers, who talk with the visitors about their life struggles and guide them out of the dense forest. Unsurprisingly the place is said to be haunted, and human remains can be found if one goes deep enough.
