Brought to you without pain, pride or prejudice, and in no particular order here’s February 2010’s Top 10 Strange Japanese Laws.

8. A few years back, a Chinese soap hit it big with consumers in Asia. It was claimed in ads that users would lose weight with Seaweed Defat Scented Soap simply by washing with it. The soap was sold in violation to the Japanese Pharmaceutical Affairs Law and was banned. Reportedly, the craze for the soap was so great that Japanese tourists from China and Hong Kong brought back large quantities. The product was also in violation of customs regulations. In June and July 1999 alone, over 10,000 bars were seized.

9. In the 1630s, a decree in Japan forbade the building of any large ocean-worthy ships to deter defection.


10. The Nationality Law says that a child born out of wedlock to a non-Japanese mother is only recognized as a citizen if the Japanese father admits paternity prior to the child’s birth or marries the mother before the child turns 20.

12. If a woman were to divorce her husband, and have a child within 6 months of the divorce the baby is legally the child of her ex-husband, moreover the woman can’t get remarried within 6 months of the divorce.

    article 9 states that japanese forces cannot be deployed out of japan. but some exceptions they have made include when they sent peace keeping troops to the middle east to aid the invasion lead by US, then immediately withdrew without any firefights. war isn’t illegal, they just can’t deploy troops which, means that they cannot attack anyone outside of japan

    • crazygaijin says:

      Richard – sorry to have to tell you this but you are WRONG. Please see the officially recognized english translation of Article 9.

      The official English translation of the article reads:

      “ ARTICLE 9. Aspiring sincerely to an international peace based on justice and order, the Japanese people forever renounce war as a sovereign right of the nation and the threat or use of force as means of settling international disputes. (2) To accomplish the aim of the preceding paragraph, land, sea, and air forces, as well as other war potential, will never be maintained. The right of belligerency of the state will not be recognized.

  3. Good Site! I was wondering if I might be able to quote a portion of your site and use a few items for a term paper. Please let me know through email if that would be fine. Thanks
