Japanese culture is absolutely incomparable to any in our Western world. Their deeply rooted politeness, precision, and dedication to work are rarely seen anywhere else. And though you might know Japan as a home to anime, sumo wrestlers, cherry blossoms and bullet trains, their ingenuity shows in many other aspects of their daily lives. Starting with extremely innovative toilets and vending machines filled with fresh farm eggs, to the unique system of Tokyo subway and drainage canals swarming with Koi fish. These are just a particle of the interesting facts about Japanese culture. Actually, there are so many that this one post couldn't fit them all.

Bored Panda has compiled some of the weirdest inventions, cultural practices and amazing facts about Japan that will make this country your go-to destination.

I have double thoughts about it. Part of me, thinks this is awsome and effective, but the othe other part thinks that, if you don't make regular people uncomfortable too, you make less impact and the people might not want to support your cause because for them, the protest is only beneficial. If everyone's uncomfortable, everyone will be like "Oh, give them what they want, so this can f***ing end!" But then, again, not everyone is the same, and my appreciation for this kind of striking is prevailing. So, I praise these drivers.

I live in the USA. Nearly twenty years ago I was at a grocery store and I noticed a checkbook lying in the bottom of my shopping cart. When I left the store, I drove to the person's house and delivered it to them. Just last summer I returned home from riding my moped and noticed my wallet was missing. I was about to leave to retrace my route to search for it when the doorbell rang. Someone on the street saw my wallet fall out of my pocket and slide under a parked car. They retrieved it and delivered it to my house. I consider this karma. It doesn't matter where you live. Every society has honest people. However, societies that seek to instill a sense of respect are likely to have fewer problems.

Good and bad people exist everywhere. I live in Brazil, where people pass by in a bike and steal you cellphone from your hand in broad daylight in a packed street and nobody cares, but I've seen people do things like this here too on occasion. It's pretty obvious they're just picking examples of good behavior, yet it seems to fool people into thinking Japan is some utopia.

I used to live in Japan it was so safe I saw a store once with a really expensive bike out front not chained to the pole it was sitting on it was for 100 thousand yen (which is about $1000) and I sat down opposite side of the road and watched it and I wasn’t surprised that no one made a glimpse at it or attempted to steal it

Has to do with the person, not the country. I live in the USA. One time I accidentally bumped a Cadillac in a parking lot and gave it a huge dent. Left an apology note with my phone number. My insurance got it fixed for him. At no cost to him. I could've just driven away. Also, a lady who was a complete stranger on the sidewalk gave me her $1,500 ticket to the Rock Hall induction ceremony. I wasn't asking. She just came up to me!

Japan promotes inclusion for it's citizens, and make sure they're covered with all the basics. And they have a truthful policy, so there's no maiming and oppression going on because people are lacking and have to maim or destroy you to survive. Every contributes and is important. Not just the rich.

Japanese are people who are the most civil in the world, thank's to their wonderful culture. They have not adopted the USA way of life. They take only the positive side of the Usa culture. Unfortunately in Europe the Usa way of life has destroyed our cultures. Thank's to the rappers, Facebook, etc. Once upon a time mothers cook wholesome meals, children would also keep the schools clean, they had chores, etc. Now the kids spend their time on the cell phones, watch TV, families don't have meals together, each one have their own TV, IT'S so sad to see this world degrade to this point.
