Fun time again today here on Just Something, as we are going to show you some of the weirdest stuff from the land of the rising sun.

Japan has always been popular for being technologically one step ahead the rest of the world, but in this article you will see that sometimes they went a bit too far with fantasy. In the following gallery you will admire some of the craziest Japanese inventions of all times. Some of them are absolutely clever but terribly uncomfortable or bad looking while some other are just totally absurd.
Between awkward ear enhancers, weird total body umbrellas and ridiculous chin rests for the daily metro journey, you will surely find the right thing for your needs.

    the message on the helmet says ‘please wake me up when i get to ……. station’ idk what station

    • khemichan

      The station is Nishi Ogikubo in Tokyo

  3. I think no. 9 the extendable arm for selfie has been the most successful case among the inventions. Maybe they should also equipped it with a flash as well. lolx.

    16. Public transport helmet (please somebody translate the message on it)

    The thing written on the forehead is a message that says “if arrived at “_____” Station, please wake me up” :)))

    16. Public transport helmet (please somebody translate the message on it)

    The thing written on the forehead is a message that says “Please do not STOMP me” :)))

  6. El mensaje del gorro de la imagen #16 dice: “Despertadme antes de la estación X ” (Dicho por una amiga japonesa =) (Yo sería la graciosa que cambiaría la tarjetita por otra a la mujer jJajajajaj)

    #21: I don’t think that’s a splash protector for when you eat ramen. I see that all the time in 100yen stores, and on the label it says something about a shower protector for children…i’m not really sure what it does, but on the picture of the item’s packaging, it looks like it prevents shampoo from getting into the kid’s eyes while you give him a bath.

    • Hanis

      Oh, that makes more sense than a splash protector from eating a bowl of ramen cause it’s definitely not going to do a good job at it.

    • Sandii

      Yes, that’s what the splash protector is for…to prevent shampoo from getting into children’s eyes.

  8. i think butter grazer invention are the most relevant i guess

  9. teresa wang

    #21 is a hair showering protector for children. I used to have one of these when I was little :)
    It is very useful for kids!

  10. Maddie

  11. Woow really nyc inventions

  12. yo mum

  13. Noonehere

    Holy cheese on a stick I need #20

    • Noonehere

      *butter

      Although cheese on a stick makes more sense than butter on a stick. Eh. They look similar. Not really, but somewhat *Nonsensical blabber*
