While the US is known for leading the world in many different types of innovation, no country is a match for Japan when it comes to the technology sector. Japan is ranked second in the world for its tech, lagging just behind Scandinavian powerhouse Norway.
While there are many reasons why this is the case, a huge factor is how much Japan prioritizes education, spending more than 3.5% of its entire Gross Domestic Product on educating its young citizens. This emphasis on learning from an early age is partially to credit for such an innovative mentality across the land of the rising sun.
In the professional world, this creativity is put to good use, whether it’s creating the next life-saving robot, or simply solving one of life’s daily problems with a handy gadget. Either way, we would absolutely love to get our hands on some of the incredible gizmos Japan’s citizens have access to.
