” The stores of full of products that wont be sold in America until years later.”
Could you clarify this statement ? I live in Japan .

When I visited Japan like 15 years ago all the electronic stores sold flat screen monitors for computers while CRTs were still the norm in the USA. I thought it was because Japanese apartments were small, but actually I was seeing the future for the USA. Also I bought an electronic gizmo that activates muscles via an electric pulse. It wasn't until years later that this was available in the USA, sold as a way to get ripped without exercise. I also bought a cool “video” game, where there was no display but you heard the target's location via stereo ear buds. That never made it to the USA as far as I know. One of those Japanese electronic shops might set up a clone in Silicon Valley, with the bowing routine and all. I bet it would do very well. But in CA there are probably 200 laws against it for one reason or another.

One Japanese product I would like to see catch on in America, and probably will at some point, is the flu face masks some Japanese people wear in public. If someone gets on an airline with cold symptoms, the airline should hand them out to everybody. I’ve caught some nasty airborne colds from H1B imports flying in from third world counties. Hand washing just doesn’t cut it.
