Anyone else think these are all really boring? Who wants to take a bath in wine? Is that the best that “Wacky Japan Inc.” can come up with? Acerola? Slow down, Japan. You are blowing my mind.
Themed Hot Springs Resorts: because normal onsen in the United States have gotten so boring.
Shower Washable Suits: so you can be just as stylish as the average salaryman, now with less hassle.
Kool Boost: I’m not a smoker or anything, but that sounds like it will revolutionize cancer delivery.
G-Shocks: Oh, Japanese kids watch so much CNN that it only makes sense they would learn their style from it.
I also like this statement:
It would be wise for futurecasters to look beyond the much-watched Japanese schoolgirls who indulge in fads.
If futurecasters are obsessed with Japanese schoolgirls, I am not sure they can call themselves “futurecasters.” Trend spotters need to spend a lot less time predicting the future and a lot more time actually figuring out what is going on in the present.
