I’ve always had a fascination with inventors. So, when I found out about the Tokyo branch of the Maker Faire – a festival where people show off their homemade inventions – I was very much into it.

And I wasn’t disappointed. After some wonderful time trawling through the wild, weird, and wonderful inventions on show, we’ve compiled a list of some of the coolest and most left-field inventions Japan has to offer. You’re going to enjoy this.
