Japan Reference has an ancient poll on "What is/are Japan's greatest contribution to the world ?"
Thought it would be interesting to read each others list. As for my list, in no particular order:-

-Dollfies (Mini daughters - very cute n adorable)
-Anime (What is it about anime that makes it cool? Difficult to express at times ^^;)
-Japanese Games (It was Japanese games that got me into Japanese culture and to study the language)
-Manga (Manga - entertaining and learned a load of Japanese though it)
-2D Girls (Personally love the Japanese style of illustrating 2D girls)
-Figures (Good Smile, Max Factory, Megahouse in particular)
-Sushi (Tastes better with hot Japanese green tea)
-Eroge (Dont play them but the girls are gorgeous)
-Dakimakura (Art tapestries)
-Oppai Mousepads (Health care for the wrists)
-Electronics (In particular the camera's)

There are many more aspects of Japanese culture that I enjoy but just thinking about the stuff that has made its way around the world. What in your mind are Japan's greatest contributions to the world and why?
