As one of the world’s most technologically advanced nations ever, Japan is regarded as being the jewel country of the Eastern world. There are lots of things we can and should learn from the Japanese, including how tall a structure is relative to Godzilla.

Single-pack coffee filters
If they have tea bags, why don’t they have coffee bags? There might be a very good reason we haven’t thought up of, but it’s still a mystery to this very day. However, in Japan, they have an entirely different kind of way to steep coffee and tea.
Instead of passing coffee through a filter in a drip coffee maker, they have single coffee filter bags that you place on the rim of your mug. Just drop some coffee in the filter and pour in boiling hot water. This is a great way to make a single-serving cup of joe without getting grounds stuck in your teeth.
