1 Crazy parking lots

As a relatively confined country, Japan is home to over 126 million people. Consequently, space-saving is one of the major issues the locals have to deal with and parking is no exception. If you drive to a shopping mall, you’ll probably come across a parking lot similar to this picture. This is a perfect way to manage the parking spots.

2 Mayonnaise

As far as ingredients go, the Japanese mayonnaise is not that different from any other part of the world, but it’s the prolific use of it that makes the Japanese mayonnaise strange to Western people. While most people typically use it on sandwiches, fries and hamburgers, the Japanese use their traditional Kewpie mayonnaise to flavor things like ice cream, potato chips, spaghetti sauce, noodles, and even pancakes.

5 Subway chin rest

Maybe one of the most bizarre inventions, but it is Japanese so it is on this list. The Japanese people work very hard and work much more than the rest of the world with no more than ten days of paid holiday per year and no wonder they are extremely tired when they head home. Snoozing in the subway is a great idea, but they don’t always get to sit down. To have their heads comfortably supported, they may use this special gadget.

You like popping bubble bags? Okay, who doesn’t like to do that – it’s an addicting pass time and we adore it, although the bubble bags don’t last forever.

8 Suicide Forrest

Yes, they have a forest for this type of activity. Officially called Aokigahara, the “Suicide Forest” is a 10 square km forest that lies at the base of Mount Fuji in Japan. The forest has such a dense tree distribution that it literally blocks wind, making it an exceptionally quiet and eerie place that for some reason has become a popular spot for suicides. Statistically, about 100 suicides occur here every year.

9 Capsule hotels

The Capsule hotel is probably the craziest Japanese invention ever. Introduced in 1979, these “hotels” have accommodation for a variety of customers ranging from traveling businessmen to drunken people who wouldn’t make it home safely. They look like some sort of space beds and are big enough for that – to have only a bed inside the capsule.
