"Made in Japan" used to have a negative connotation, but now that everything is made in China, Japan is being forced to compete in the global market based on clever, unusual and fun products. They can no longer just base their merchandise on how cheaply they can make and sell stuff.
The gallery shows a sample of Japanese products that may hit the shelves soon. Featured is the ultra-thin mouse, home ear wax cleaner with scope, mini humidifier, butt shaper pillow, hotwater bottle kitty, bamboo toothbrushes, octopus ball maker/cooker, dancing robot dogs, the yell silencer and the box of black tissues.
