If you have to pick just one country with strange customs, weird people, and things that consistently make you say WTF, your first choice is likely going to be Japan. I don’t know what it is about that nation, but they come up with things that are mind bogglingly crazy.
Whats even weirder, Japan is probably one of the most efficient countries on the planet. If I am going to buy something and I have the choice of having it made in Japan or anywhere else in the world, my first choice will undoubtedly be Japan. But, when those people are having fun, they just do some of the craziest shit.
Here is a collection of some of the crap I am talking about. If you can go through this list without saying WTF at least a dozen times, you’re a better man (or woman) than I.
