52528 ratings | 2933951 views
DID YOU KNOW Japan has bullet trains that can travel 320 km/hour? Or superior toilet seats that can heat up your butt, clean it spotless, and check your blood pressure? Or interactive robots that can serve you lunch, analyze your facial expressions and be your customer service agent in phone stores? I just finished my 6th visit to Japan, and every time I leave this country, I have a hard time comprehending what I just experienced. In this video, I take you around Tokyo and show you 10 ways that Japan is 10 years ahead of the world. Anyone else agree with me?

None of the 10 things were impressive. USA has 40000 planes in the air and no bullet trains because it's bigger. All that electronic shit is landfill. Gaming is making millions of men pussies. You can buy used panties in vending machines. Great. The subways are crammed with sleepy sheep.
HONGJUN LEE (1 day ago)
Really? do you seriously think the bullet trains, the special toilets and etc are 10 years ahead of the world? you can even find those in China. Come on, this is not Africa. All those you mentioned as "amazing in Japan" are already common in whole East Asia (Japan, Korea, China, Taiwan). There are 300Km/h trains in France, China, Turkey, Korea, Germany and many other countries

Ill give them the train and toilet, everything else you can see anywhere maybe not as grand but same.

I can hardly imagine what it would be like to live in a country where all the people were working toward similar goals and there was a unified culture, and traditions were honored by all. In the US we are divided and there is no end in sight. The closest we ever got to being unified was under Eisenhower. That sense of common purpose will never return in America, no matter what the politicians promise every election. I think most countries are split like this. See what is happening in France and Europe in general right now. Japan is an exception. I hope they continue to guard what they have. It is very fragile. There are many different forces within Japan at present pushing in different directions: rap music is popular http://tinyurl.com/llmjk9m, but so is Wagakki Band http://tinyurl.com/kyhev5m and Kyary http://tinyurl.com/gv37ovn. Japan seems to want to be closer to the West, but I'm not sure their culture could survive that.

It is Korean who is making negative comments here. Why do Koreans dislike Japan? That is caused by Confucian Hua–Yi distinction. They regard Japan as far away from China as being inferior.

Japan is 10-15 years behind other first world countries in technology in most cases. 2018 and many large companies are still using fax machines, data is often transferred on floppy disks or burned to CDs or purely on paper, and most office workers can barely use the 1 or 2 software packages (usually Excel or Word) that they've been using for 20+ years. Most of the technology that visitors get impressed by is in entertainment or other gimmicks.

Is that way China is now the leading economy in the world with over a billion people? Japan has been in economic decline for decades now, I know because I used to live in Tokyo. Shanghai is the world's largest city, far larger than Tokyo. No offense to Japan, but they literally copied American society after World War 2.

Koala (5 days ago)
You’re acting like this stuff is only found in Tokyo but it is found commonly in industrialized countries. You can’t make a video like this without doing research. For example those touchscreens menus are prevalent in many McDonald’s stores in America. Bullet trains are also found in China. Nothing is unique technology wise about this city versus Times Square New York. The most unique part is culture but that doesn’t mean they are 10 years ahead or whatever you say.

vending machines + fashion + other little things = futuristic? That's a pretty rigorous analysis... I agree with this guy that Japan looks pretty futuristic but I know Japan is backward in many ways. Wouldn't he have to consider a bunch of other factors too when making a sweeping statement like that? For anyone who wants to know what Japan is really like just go and stay there for a month; don't take this guy's word.

I don't' like it, crowded, and dirty for most part. Those so called "technology" is cheap and easy. China is ahead of Japan in certain things like high speed rail road network (note, I mean extensive network, not necessarily the max speed for a short distance), and cashless payment, etc...... U.S.A. is still ahead of China though. You can not just focus on few things. The big picture, U.S.A. is still way ahead.....
Barrington (8 days ago)
Uh coming from personal experience .... I've been in the Yokohama area for a little over 2 years. Let me start by saying that I love Japan and I don't want to go back stateside but looking at Japan it's not that futuristic. Yes the things mentioned are cool and convenient but Japan is behind in a couple of things. I would definitely say (as backwards as the States are) the tech here is overpriced. If you go to rural Japan forget 70% of that list. Pretty much everywhere back in the states credit cards are accepted .... not here. The diversity of what you can buy in the states is larger. I think Japan is kind of stuck in that infocommercial type stage where they buy these wacky items that don't really do anything. Its the same items i saw on HSN or late night TV growing up but housewives here eat it up. Back in the states we caught on to that game a while ago. As for the people, ha ha ha I love them but shit they can be quite biased and prejudiced lol. Its the upfront nice and the behind your back "dirty" gaijin lol. I don't care but Japanese people can be kind of mean. Oh and at the stations .... people will be pretty reluctant to sit next to you. I even had one lady get up and go to the next train car to avoid me sitting next to her. I don't care because I'm from America and American culture creates individuals who are used to diversity. I can literally name a ton of things that I took for granted back in the states that i don't have here. Again I say that to say this .... I love Japan (Trump is President) I do not see myself returning anytime soon. If you can overlook those small (large) cultural nuances then Japan is a clean, fun, safe, and interesting place to live.

Don’t leave Japan! You’ll be sickened and saddened. The smarter the individual, the more he/she is unlikely to be selfish, the more that individual is likely to think about and work with others. The more ignorant the individual, the more hoarding and selfish that person is, the ignorant man thinks this is the way to self preservation. For example, hunting within a community and sharing your catch is more beneficial than hunting alone or not sharing with the community. This is a fact, tested and concluded as a fact. Stereotyping, (the ability to see patterns and predicting/calculating, life based on those patterns) is a huge part of our evolution. It’s next in line from having a thumb and fine motor skills. I’m basing ignorance in direct correlation with IQ. In black Africa, there are no advances in technology, medicine, no ancient pyramids, lost great cities, people will murder you in a second with no thought of consequence for your possessions. All bad, ave IQ = 64 Middle East, not including Isreal. Ave IQ 77. Muslim population of 1.8 billion - 3 Nobel prizes one of those in economics which should not count ..... pathetic, not so much as an alarm clock to be reported as a contribution to the world. Don’t get me started on terror and extremist. Central America ave IQ 75-81 Not one non food product /food related product originated from this place. Animals that overthrow one another and live in filth. India- 81 all bad, you’ll get deathly ill there. Trash piled up in the rivers 10 feet high. How about China? Ave iq 106! Total shithole. Mekong river packed with fish farms, water is black, shorelines covered in cigarette butts 4’ wide, thousands of people living in boats on the river, shitting in the water daily while using that same water to boil noodles. Awful. 2 classes of people in China, the IQ test you see online is not taken by these people. There are only a handful of countries worth visiting. Don’t die

Do you know what the most revolutionary thing is? It's clean and safe. (Generally.) I don't care how many robots or places that accept mobile payments you have in a city. I would never want to live in a city that's covered in filth with dark runoff water on most streets, but has robots. Public hygiene and safety are markers of an advanced country in my opinion.

Sadly despite technological progress, many japanese people and consumers aren't exactly technologically advanced. Many businesses have poor IT infrastructure and instead rely on faxes and landlines to get by, many people still use flip-phones and old laptops, and there are not much ATMs across japan for one. Plus I can't forget to mention their social progress (hard issue)

Love Japan, but 'efficiency' is not it's strength. It has one of the lowest productivity levels in the developed world. Bullet trains, arcade gaming and robots are not unique to Japan. Japanese toilets are the best, as are vending machines. Japan also has a not well known 'low tech underbelly' where tech is way behind other modern nations.

I feel like the U.S is slowly but surely becoming like Japan or atleast here in Texas. Every where I look there is always some sort of change going on or some form of advancement just like Japan is doing, but that's probably because I live near one of the biggest and most expensive stadiums.... Anyways I'm hoping to one day move to Japan for a little while to have a different and unique life style.
