1. Cutesy Construction Barriers
Construction can be unpleasant to look at, so might as well make it a little cuter. The unsightly orange and black striped barriers you’d find in Canada might catch drivers’ eyes, but the cartoon-shaped ones in Japan will make you want to keep looking.
2. Blue Traffic Lights
Almost universally, red means stop and green means go. If you’re in Japan, though, you’d have to wait a long time waiting for the traffic light to turn green. In that country, the “go” lights are more of a turquoise or aqua colour, and in some areas they’re just plain blue.
Learn why Japan’s traffic lights are blue and not green.
3. An Island of Bunnies
Off the East Sea of Japan sits Ōkunoshima, an island fittingly dubbed “Rabbit Island.” By taking a quick ferry ride over, visitors can watch and feed hundreds of fluffy bunnies.
