In Japanese culture, we have seen a distinct trend toward creating products that appeal to the lonely, single type. We’ve recently seen the motif play out in this Instagram tutorial, the Girlfriend coat, and the augmented reality girlfriend. This is further embodied by a new foam pillow shaped like a life-sized woman’s lap and legs.

"Hizamakura", Or  Lap Pillow Introduced In Japan

Currently sold-out at the Japan Trend Shop in the Tokyo and Narita International airports, the ‘Hizamakura Lap Pillow’ is an accessory that resembles the kneeling, mini skirt wearing lap of a woman. Created in the mid 2000′s by the Trane Corporation and advertised as a homesickness-healing accessory, the lap pillow was an instant hit with shoppers. Designed for lonely travelers, the polyurethane cushion recreates the comforting feeling of resting one’s head on a woman’s lap.
