* Street racing, especially unsanctioned ones, can also be added to the list of things that are hot tickets in Japan. After all, they gave us ''Anime/SpeedRacer'' and ''Manga/InitialD'', ''VideoGame/RidgeRacer'', and western works like ''WesternAnimation/WackyRaces'' are big draws with Japanese viewers. ''Wacky Races'' has also been homaged in various anime works.

** A similar case happens with Japan, which while most Japanese feel indifferent about their country (outside of the ultra-right wings of course), the European countries, the U.S., Canada, Nigeria, Indonesia, Australia, New Zealand (the latter three of which were targets of Japan during WorldWar2) and even ''Russia'' (who still hold many disputes over land territories, and have for time not even had relations) have a better view of Japan than the Japanese themselves.

* Has happened twice with Sudoku. It was first invented in America in 1979, and was pretty obscure. However, in 1986, it achieved popularity in Japan. In 2005, the puzzle as well as the name itself achieved worldwide popularity.
** Pretty much the same thing happened with Kakuro.
* Supposedly, many more foreigners than native Japanese climb Mt. Fuji.
** Same thing happens to most Japanese landmarks like Tsukiji Fish Market.
* Guam is an island out the Pacific Ocean that's officially owned by the the United States, but it's only a territory, not a state. In fact, there's a lot of US citizens that don't even know Guam exists. However, Guam is seen as a very popular vacation resort in Japan, to the point where Guam actually gets most of its money from Japanese tourists.
** Hawaii is also very popular with Japanese tourists, but they're more likely to hit the shopping malls instead of the beaches. Hawaii rakes in more money from Japanese tourists than it does from Americans. In fact, Hawaii's largest mall, Ala Moana Center, has the only remaining branch of the formerly-Japanese department store Shirokiya. It also helps that there's a large Japanese-American population in Hawaii.
* It's widely-known that [[EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs dinosaurs make everything better]], but Japan especially agrees. Dinosaur exhibitions are frequently held throughout, and there's even a company that specializes in animatronic dinosaurs. And to top it all off, this is the country that gave us ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}''. Likewise, South Korea and China also has quite a dinosaur craze.
* Like mermaids, pirates are popular in the US but are absolutely beloved in Japan, to the point where they're one of the largest non-western markets for pirate-themed media. Case in point, the pirate themed manga ''Manga/OnePiece'' is among the bestselling manga in the country. Meanwhile, ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanOnStrangerTides'' grossed $241 million dollars domestically yet grossed $108 million in Japan. While domestic grosses for the ''Franchise/{{Pirates|OfTheCaribbean}}'' franchise has been steadily declining in the states, grosses in Japan have gone UP.

** [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff/{{Sports}} As mentioned on Sports section]], auto racing ''actually'' [[OlderThanTheyThink started out on public roads]], and many race tracks were built afterwards. It was originated from France, but Japan ''really'' takes a piece of cake when it comes to street races.
*** Street racing can be divided into two types; The sanctioned ones take place on temporary, designated, sanctioned street tracks with some essential safety features. While the unsanctioned ones takes place on public roads without permissions, and most have utter lack of safety features that sanctioned street races have. This example refers to the latter despite Japan lacks any designated street circuits.

* American, Canadian, Australian, New Zealander and Mexican women are [[CaptainObvious already popular in their home nations]] but since late 2011 at least, there has been a trend (at least in terms of demographic trend, not fashion trends) for British men to seek American or Canadian wives (and it is ''not'' a RaceFetish), either online or via other in-person means. As it is, the United Kingdom does have a significant American and Canadian diaspora - mostly in London, Edinburgh, Norfolk, Suffolk, and North-West England.

* [[Creator/SaulBass Saul Bass's]] [[IconicLogo corporate logos]] and [[ArtisticTitle film titles]] became so famous in Japan that one of his first Japanese clients, the Keio Department Store in 1964, took out a newspaper ad promoting him. His work in Japan, primarily on corporate identity projects, continued into the 1990s.
