Japan’s “Sugoi” Things I Found

Posted December 8th, 2011 in Japan 2 Comments »

Since I’m back to Japan I’ve noticed few things that made me  think “wow….!” “Japan tte, sugoi ne”

I just want to list some of them here….

Eggs bought from a super market.  A pack of eggs is sometimes ¥98 here.  And, each egg has a sticker saying its expiry date.  Wow.

A pack of cotton buds for baby bought from a 100yen shop.  It contains 50 cotton buds, and they are individually packaged.  And, there are instruction of how to open the package, and “made in Japan” printed on each one of them. Again, the pack is just ¥100.  Wow.

Photos taken at a supermarket.  Each section sells varieties of brands.  One isle sells just sliced white bread, and one isle sells just Japanese green teas.  Wow.

I found this at my house.  A container for nikuman!  Haha, it makes it easy to store one nikuman in the fridge, indeed.  This can be a steamer to warm up nikuman in microwave, too.

A cup of instant udon noodle.  It contains chunks of pork, abura-age (fried beancurd), carrot and spring onion.  Is this an instant noodle?  These ingredients even got crunchy texture.  Oishi~

I don’t remember if public toilets in Perth are the same, but here in Japan, toilets have sink for little kids too.

And, handbag hooks inside the toilet is like this shape in Japan.  Looks strange, but this is to prevent someone outside trying to steel the bag while you are peeing (from above the door).  This crime happened so many times few years ago, and lots of public toilets use this type of hook now.

    Haha! I have exactly the same photo of eggs from one of my trips. My Japanese friend didn’t understand why I wanted to take the photo, but I agree, it is so sweet and we don’t have anything like that in Australia.
    Your blogs make me so want to be in Japan right now.
    Maybe I will just go home and update my blog from my last trip. I haven’t done it since I returned.
    I have a photo of the cutest little child’s toilet that was in a big cubicle, opposite the big ‘Mummy’ toilet. It is so sweet how the children are always considered.

    I actually didn’t realize all these things until I had my own child. Yes, I agree with you, there are so many things that are considered for children here. Even a male toilet has changing table inside 😀
