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.

The version of this in the US comes with a larger tank. Not sure what the issue would be with cross contamination either-the toilet still works as usual, it just uses water that was used in the sink.

I'm all for conserving water, but did they have to put it right on top? Why not put the sink beside the toilet, then have a pipe that runs to the toilet. That way you don't have to awkwardly straddle it to wash your hands.

Think it might be a space thing. Many Japanese homes are smaller, and having a separate toilet only room (tub in another room) is common. The toilet room is literally the size of a hall closet. Occasionally there is a tiny sink (which are actually worse cause I found my hands couldn't fit ), but having these is more common. And if you just put your arms out, you're not straddling...

Dan Africk

This may have been a good idea 20 years ago, but as neat as it seems, is a terrible idea today. I say this is both a professional consultant on energy and water efficiency, and someone who once lived in a house that had one of these toilet tank sinks: These sinks only work with older toilet designs that are very inefficient compared with modern high-efficiency, pressure-assisted toilets. And the water flow is such a slow and weak trickle, they're not effective at getting your hands clean. For comparison, a modern pressure-assisted toilet can use 0.8 gallons per flush, or as little as 0.6 for a dual-flush model. and a low-flow faucet aerator uses 0.5 gallons per minute (0.35gpf models exist, but those are too weak to be effective imo). So one flush plus 30 seconds of handwashing uses 1.05 gallons of water. Meanwhile the standard and most 'efficient' tank type toilet that you can use this sink on uses 1.6 gallons per flush (not counting double-flushing which is frequently necessary)

In the US, older toilets use about 5-7 gallons of water for EACH flush. But new toilets use about 1 1/2 gallons. I have a low water toilet myself. Colorado is an arid state, so there is a lot of concern about water conservation here. So the low water toilets are very popular. Makes so much more sense.

The water will come out from faucet automatically after you flush. It doesn't have its own valve (except using flush button). So when I need to rinse my hands from soap, I have to flush again. Sometimes it bit wastes water, thought it will be recycled after
