Unique Things Found In Japanese Apartments That Can Terrify and Delight The Tourists

5Japanese cook omelets in a special four-sided frying pan, not in a circular pan

Japan’s food culture is surely a little different and rolled omelets are very famous in Japan. In Japan, omelets are cooked in a special rectangular frying pan, which is almost the opposite of what we use for cooking omelets. According to them, cooking omelets in rectangular pans make the rolls neat and even. This kind of frying pan is recognized as Makiyakinabe or Tamagoyaki. Makiyakinabe is a four-sided or square frying pan used for making Japanese-styled rolled omelets.

6Miniature sinks on toilet bowls in Japan

Toilets around the world are common in terms of structure and facilities, but not in Japan. You can usually find miniature sinks on the toilet bowls. Most toilets follow a specific mechanism, which is very simple and smart. According to this mechanism, when you flush the toilet, the water from the tap comes into the sink so that you wash your hands and then go to the toilet bowl. This kind of toilet setup helps in saving money on hefty water bills.

7Washing machines with built-in dryers are more popular in Japan

Compared to the rest of the world, Japanese people prefer to use washing machines with built-in dryers. However, this can be an inconvenient thing for foreigners visiting Japan. Most foreigners report that built-in dryers are inconvenient as they don’t dry clothes. Foreigners point out that even after setting the drying mode for hours, the clothes could be a little wet in the end. Because most Japanese have less space for a separate dryer to use, they use washing machines that have built-in dryers. This is another great strategy to save some space in homes.

8Japanese prefer poles for cabinets and closets

Japanese people prefer special poles for cabinets and closets. Most of these poles have an adhesive bottom. Either they are glued on one side of the cabinets or they are glued on the closet. These Japanese folks use special sticky pads that they glue on the floor as well as on the legs on one side. These sticky pads are used for the cabinets that are relatively lower than the ceilings. There is one small reason for this type of setting: the pole will not let the furniture fall if an earthquake takes place.
