30 Times People Realized They’re Too Tall For Japan

Published 5 years ago

Whether you’ve been to Japan or not, you probably know it’s one of the most unique countries in the world. However, something that many westerners visiting Japan don’t know is that a lot of things there are a bit smaller than we are used to. Now, this isn’t necessarily a problem – except if you’re tall.

Turns out constantly crouching to get through doorways and always having to watch your head can get a bit tiresome – but that’s just something you have to deal with when visiting Japan. Maybe invest in a nice sturdy helmet?

Check out the most hilarious tall people problems people had while visiting Japan in the gallery below!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
