  1. 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” :)))

  2. 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” :)))

  3. 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)

  4. #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.

    • 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.

  5. #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!

    • *butter

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

  6. It is called Chindogu. and the Japanese consider it an art form.
    It is the act of inventing something that is “almost” completely useless.
    It takes a good sense of humor to appreciate.

  7. This is quite crazy..Japanese people invest all these tools tools, devices that are simply fascinating. But small parking garage we have in my home town was really amazing. They can fit up to 15 cars or so. When If first saw that in junior high, I could not believe it…
