10 Of The Most Ridiculous Japanese Inventions Of All Time

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?

But they are probably best known for their eccentric & fascinating inventions. More often that not, they are completely and utterly useless and yet you can't deny, there's a strange (if impractical) logic to them all.

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?

We thought not.
