It’s widely known that Japan is home to everything innovative and progressive. The most unusual and shocking things have been invented there.
We at Bright Side have put together a list of Japan’s weirdest inventions. Let us know in the comments which one you find the most fascinating. Also, the article itself is tricky this time...can you find one thing that is missing?
21. Nose straightener
If you are looking for a way to reshape your nose without plastic surgery, give this one a try. Manufacturers claim that wearing this device for a few minutes every day will help you to achieve great results.
20. Eyedrop glasses
A lot of us have problems putting a medication directly into our eyes without spilling it. As a consequence, we end up wasting money (and, let’s be honest, nerves). However, from now on this problem is officially solved. Japanese eyedrop glasses will do all the work for you!
19. Cat face mask
Not only does this mask look cool for Halloween but it also has an additional beauty function.
18. Canned food bar
This restaurant serves a great variety of food. However, there is one major peculiarity: all food (and liquor!) is canned.

16. Jeans with a cat tail
If you enjoy your cat following you around at all times, you will definitely appreciate these jeans. Just put them on, and your pet will always want to play with you.

Head support in the shape of an arm can be used to avoid neck pain. It also prevents your head from falling down in case you accidentally fall asleep.

6. Scream jar
For anyone with occasional temper tantrums and thin apartment walls, the scream jar is the perfect device to release your stress. It silences even the loudest screams.
