Perhaps it is the geography of America; the wide-open spaces of the Prarie, the vast cornfields in the midwest and the deserts of Arizona, Nevada, and Utah – Americans are truly comfortable with big. Big cars, big meals, big homes

On the other side is Japan; 126 million people squeezed on to four main islands, with the total area being 26 times smaller than the US.

The Japanese have learned to be economical with space – whether it be houses, technology, or dioramas – which might be an issue when tall people visit this country. Heads are bumped on low doors, showers are too short, and train seats… well, it is cozy put it that way.

The list below shows the struggles of the lanky in this compact country, we’d recommend bringing a helmet if you are over 6ft! Scroll down to check out the list for yourself:
