Japan is full of cool and innovative stuff, and they've been making some of the coolest stuff on the planet since well before their ports were open to Westerners.
By stuff I mean everything from their public transportation to their public toilets, their pop culture franchises to their food products, and most especially these locking bike racks that are free for all to use.

It's also unclear why we don't have toilets as awesome as the ones they have in Japan, because nothing helps you do your business like an attentive toilet with sound effects and a bidet ready to wash your poop away.
And just to prove they've thought of everything they even sell new shirts and pants at the 7-11s, so you don't have to wander the streets in the nude anymore!
