The Weird World of Japan

This post is about japanese creativity. Their inventions, games and a very particular dictionary

Kids' Japan Game
A game to begin to learn Japanese. Hiragana and katakana each consist of 46 signs which originally were kanji but were strongly simplified over the centuries. When looking at a Japanese text, one can clearly distinguish the two kinds of signs: the complicated kanji and the simpler kana signs. Hiragana is the first of all the writing systems taught to Japanese children. Many books for young children are, therefore, written in hiragana only.

Japanese Vending Machines
Estimates suggest there are 5.6 million vending machines which works out to be one for every 20 people in Japan.

Automatic door
This door is segmented into multiple strips and opens minimally according to the shape of the individual, animal or object that has to pass through. It also incorporates a security function that identifies people. The door is activated by the infrared sensors (the small black areas attached at the inner edges of the strips)
