Uruwaza - make it and mend it Japanese style
If you want to know how to improve your karaoke singing, how to pick up broken glass safely or how to fix your mobile phone when you drop it down the toilet, then you need Uruwaza, the Japanese art of finding unusual solutions to everyday problems.
This has become quite a craze in Japan, with a popular TV show dedicated to challenging contestants to come up with ever more unusual and interesting tricks and this has spawned an industry of books and tip guides. The craze is now starting to take off in the USA as a result of YouTube.
In the spirit of Uruwaza we'd love to hear of any of your own uruwaza type solutions. We'll put the best of them on our website. Just add a comment below or on our facebook page. (and you can buy the book on our website)
