1. “Nano care” from Panasonic
This “Nano care” series are the hot seller since several years. “Nano-care” changed the general idea for hair dryer that it’s a tool to get wet hair dried. This great invention added the function of “hair care”. What is written in this ads on the top is “Head spa at the same time as drying your hair”.
“Nano care” gives off several kinds of negative air ionization therapy, which make the hair beautiful and strong enough not to be damaged by ultra violet ray.
This is the ads of Nano care. This fashion model says “As if I was giving my hair a treatment!! My hair get dried soon, but kept moist.” Of course this phrase is to attract people, but it’s true that a lot of Japanese girls get surprised after using this hair dryer. (I’m a one of them.) If you have Japanese female friends, ask them what is the most recommended hair dyer in Japan. Many or all of them would reply to you that it’s “Nano care” from Panasonic.
２. Electric toothbrush
Electric toothbrush is now very popular and common in Japan. You have many choices from OMRON, Panasonic, Braun, PHILIPS etc. But it’s not only the maker which brings you irresolute, but also the stylish design!
３. Roomba from iRobot
For instance, the Roomba is able to change direction on encountering obstacles, detect dirty spots on the floor, and detect steep drops to keep it from falling down stairs. It uses two independently operating wheels that allow 360 degree turns. Additionally, it can adapt to perform other more “creative” tasks using an embedded computer in conjunction with the Roomba Open Interface.
This helpful “pet” becomes more and more popular in Japan! Besides to its quality, many ads help Rooma’s popularity.
Tortoise Matsumoto, a vocalist of Japanese rock group Ulfuls is one of the fan of Roomba. He wrote the words for Roomba, “You, who can only do cleaning and Me, who cannot even do cleaning, if we live together, it’s great. You and me forever in this room…♪”
