Some modern Japanese technology

Bullet Train – The first high-speed train, or bullet train, was built in Japan and was first put into operation in 1964. These trains are faster, more efficient, and help reduce environmental damage, not to mention they provide a huge benefit to the economy. They can travel anywhere from 120 mph to 260 mph.

Optoelectronics – In the 1980’s, optoelectronics, a marriage of electronics and optics, has been yielding important commercial products such as optical fiber communications systems. It united the electron with the ephemeral photon, the particle of light, to attain greater efficiency in data processing and transmission than electronics can achieve by itself. It is drastically revolutionizing the communications system and is widely expected to form the next generation of information-based technology.

Capsule hotel – While capsule hotels used to have a more inglorious reputation, they’re becoming increasingly popular. These compact pods offer cheap accommodations for those who just need a place to sleep. That being said, more extravagant capsule hotels are popping up across Japan, providing their guests with flat-screen TVs and access to saunas and hot springs.
