Why are many products made in Japan loved over the world ?
Made in Japan products are trusted by overseas customers. The high quality and safety of products made in Japan may be why Japanese hands are thought of as being dexterous and polite. Among products made in Japan, some that find their way to unexpected, even surprising places. In a survey of Japanese people, they were asked what they think is most amazing among products made in Japan. Here are some answers.
The “seams of the Parthenon pillars” got the most votes. The Parthenon, an ancient Greek architectural masterpiece that has been certified as a World Heritage Site, was repaired on a large scale in the 19th century. Kobe Steel’s titanium building material was first used in 1979 as a corrosion-resistant reinforcement. Second place went to Kono Works, a specialized manufacturer of medical devices that made “0.03mm surgical needle thread, the world’s smallest diameter needle thread.” Thanks to this needle thread, even blood vessels of 0.1mm diameter can now be sutured, which had been impossible previously. The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry also awarded it the Japan Manufacturing Prize, which gave this Japanese product an official national endorsement. Next, in third place, was SDC Tanaka’s “screws that connect the ‘Hope’ to the International Space Station.” These screws that connected the “Hope” Japanese Experiment Module to the International Space Station in 2008 were apparently made by SDC Tanaka when the company had only 22 employees.
Many more products made in Japan are loved the world over; for example, Rolex and Bulgari watch faces, the iPod mirror surface, and others.
