Japan is one of the most advanced countries in the world, and they make sure that everyone in their cities can see that. A good example of this is that there is 1 vending machine for every 43 inhabitants, and they sell pretty much everything you can imagine. This is just one of the reasons why the country seems so attractive to outsiders who are keen to take some of the culture home.
We want to showcase the unique things you can only see and find in Japan.
