From living in transparent homes, to ginormous swimming pools, to licking doorknobs and fields of rice transformed into art – Japan is wonderfully varied, peculiar and certainly entertaining culture, it’s a place where nothing really has to make sense and where things rarely do. They even have an island that is dedicated entirely to cats, what’s not to love?

We’ve picked out 10 of our personal favourites, but do let us know which ingenious gadget appeals to you the most. Ask yourself, would you part with your hard-earned cash to buy any of them?
