Q: What are the best Japanese products that other countries don't have?

Q: What are the best Japanese products that other countries don't have? / 他の国にはない優れた日本製品って何だと思いますか?

Masaki Seike

The Question is from: トール (Tohru-san)  

The answer from Dylan Stewart (USA):

The only thing that Japan has and America doesn’t have is those luxury trains.

The answer from Neil Radtke (N/A):

I'm going to say Omamori charms which are good luck amulets sold at Shinto shrines. Another one would be the Gotochi a word used to describe local specialties and regional flavors but can also include things that aren’t edible, like the Hello Kitty Gotochi Series charms. Wagashi has been around since the Edo period. Light and delicate, they are usually served with tea and are the go-to snack for Japanese tea ceremonies. I have been wanting to try Wagashi and other Japanese tea treats and such for a long time now as I find the food options in Japan to have with tea or any other type of tea or to have at an event to be very well made. 



This page is solely created for "Uwajima World Link," Office Seike's weekly FM radio program on Wednesdays, 1:00 PM- 1:55 PM JST, broadcasting from Uwajima City, located in the southern part of Ehime Prefecture, Japan.
The questions we present here are from students from Ehime Pref. Uwajima Minami Secondary School in Uwajima City. They are eager to learn English & various cultures out there in the world.

We, Office Seike, strongly believe learning other languages and cultures brings broader perspectives and hints to local cities like our hometown Uwajima. Also, it helps us discover and appreciate our unique traditions and rich local cultures. We sincerely hope your answers to these students' questions inspire them, guide them, and let them be interested in you and your cultures.

Please leave us your comments and answers from below. 






Thank you in advance.
