Japan is a very crowded and yet small country so at some point the Japanese started stretching out to above and beyond ground level to find new spaces to fulfil their needs. This can be seen in massive skyscrapers as well as in parking systems which in Japan tend to be as automated and space saving as possible. From underground bike parking to towers rotating your car up to their highest point, Japanese parking systems are definitely not only interesting for countries with small space.
Male beauty grooming is booming in Japan. The conventional image of a grey-suited and grey-faced businessman is being usurped by a colourful new generation of beauty-conscious Japanese men. With new products ranging from men-only make up and manicures to moisturisers and facials, it is Japan's men who are fuelling the nation's beauty industry.
