15 Photos That Prove Japan Is Clearly Not Like Any Other Country Out There

By Nenad Dojcinovski, 4 June 2018


We all come from special and unique places. We're not trying to be polite or nice here, but this is the truth. Just think about, if you were born and raised in Japan the facts you're about to see wouldn't be so entertaining to you. Japan wouldn't be a country like no other because you're used to the culture and the way society works in general.

But this is not a rule that stands only for Japan. You can come from any other place from this Planet and that place would be unique to strangers.

The things that make Japan unique are quite extraordinary. And when we say extraordinary, we don't mean flashy cars and luxury. It's the little things and details that make Japan such a unique place.

If you haven't been in Japan yet, this list you're about to see will probably change your mind.

1Polite bus drivers.

We've seen workers going on strike in almost every country out there. It doesn't even matter if the country is rich or poor, when workers go to strike they usually block roads and refuse to work until the government agrees to their terms…but not Japan bus drivers.

2The blind can read the cans.

This is indeed a little detail but it's enough for us to know that Japan cares about everybody. We haven't yet seen a can with braille on the top. It's always important to know what you're drinking and the same goes for people who are visually impaired.

3The Fifa World Cup match from 2014.


Football or soccer is the most famous sport in the world by a distance. Which means that a football match, especially when it comes to the World Cup, is a sensation indeed. And after every big sports event there's always a pile of trash that needs to be cleaned. The Japanese fans know this, and that's why they stayed after the game to help clean up the mess.

4Unusual baby seats.

Robots, talking dogs and a handful of other innovations are a result of Japan's urge for innovation. They do have those gigantic robots that look a bit scary if we're being honest, but it's not all about showing off when it comes to original ideas. Take a look at these unusual but useful baby seats that you can find in most of Japan's bathrooms for example.
