Munchable chili oil (we just can’t stop saying that, it’s so hot!) wasn’t the only let’s say “only-in-Japan” result in the top ten, with LED light bulbs at #10, the Toyko Sky Tree (a still being built broadcasting tower) at #7 and Ryoma Sakamoto, a historical figure in a popular Samurai drama.
Some more understandable (outside of Japan) results were flat-screen TVs and the World Cup. Here’s the full list:
- Munchable chili oil
- Digital flat-panel TVs
- Ryoma Sakamoto
- International flight services at Haneda Airport
- Tokyo Sky Tree tower
- Energy-saving appliances (that were eligible for a government rebate)
- The World Cup
- LED light bulbs
