Weirdest Gaming Tech You Can Only Buy In Japan


Published -

The Crazy World Of Japanese Game Accessories has certainly gotten weird!

You’d expect more from a famous video game, console creators, and the region of the world where PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo, and sega come from! – Guess not!

What is Taiko no Tatsujin, and why is it unique to Japan?

Japan has become synonymous with cutting-edge technology and innovative products. From cars to electronics, the country has consistently been at the forefront of technological advancements. The same can be said about the gaming industry in Japan, where they have developed some of the most inventive and outside-the-box gaming tech that can’t be found anywhere else in the world. These gaming technologies range from insane peripherals to bizarre controllers, each one being uniquely Japanese. We have compiled a list of some of the weirdest gaming tech you can only buy in Japan.

1. Sega Toylets

At first glance, the Sega Toylets may seem like a regular urinal, but it’s far from it. The Sega Toylets are built with sensors that detect the pressure, direction, and duration of your stream. The information is then used to play one of four interactive mini-games installed in the urinal, such as “Graffiti Eraser” and “Manneken Pis.” The games are designed to keep men entertained and on target while doing their business.

2. Taiko no Tatsujin Drum Kits

Taiko no Tatsujin is a popular rhythm game in Japan that involves hitting a taiko drum in sync with music notes that scroll across the screen. The game has become so popular that the game developer, Namco, started selling Taiko drum kits as a peripheral for the game. The drum kit comes in two versions, one for casual players and another for professionals. It’s a brilliant way to bring an authentic Japanese experience to the game.

3. Pikachu 3DS XL

The Pikachu 3DS XL is not only an exclusive in Japan but is also a limited edition console. It’s a golden yellow handheld console that has a Pikachu’s face as a graphic on the top of the console. The console sold out in Japan almost instantly, and it’s now difficult to find even on the secondary market.

4. Classic Famicom Belt Buckle

The Famicom Belt Buckle is a unique accessory for Nintendo lovers. The belt buckle looks like the classic Nintendo Famicom controller, and it’s designed to hold your belt in place. It’s a stylish and wearable way to show off your love for the classic Nintendo consoles.

5. Namco Flamin’ Finger

Flamin’ Finger is another arcade game that has become popular in Japan. It’s a speed game where players have to push a button as quickly as possible to light up an array of LEDs. The game is designed to test your reflexes and speed, and it’s a favorite at Japanese arcades.


Japan continues to be the hub of gaming innovation, and these are just a few examples of the bizarre gaming tech that you can only find in the country. Nevertheless, some of these products may seem strange to Westerners, they speak to a different culture where gaming and tech are brought together to create unique and exciting experiences. If you’re ever in Japan, make sure to check some of these out, as they’re sure to impress you.
