I guess prostrating yourself in an extreme form of apology (dogeza) can be seen as particularly Japanese – as would be making a keitai-strap figure of the same. When combined with the figures' availability from street-side or in-shop toy dispensers, the triple combination means that perhaps you can't get much more "Japanese". There is one strap that was rumoured to resemble the boss of Tepco – or at least it just came out as Tepco found themsleves dealing with the problems of the Fukushima plant – but I've yet to come across one of those. These are merely beach- or surfing-themed apologists from the same company, Zariganiworks. Complete with miserably apologetic faces…
