Amazing Japanese Magic Towelettes (Oshibori)

Japan is famous for it's high tech toys and gadgets, and I am always finding cool stuff that seems to only exist here. Recently I discovered something new, or at least new to me. In Japan small towels called Oshibori are given to customers at restaurants to clean your hands before eating. A local ramen restaurant here in Okinawa called Motonari offers a slightly newer, high tech version of the simple towel. Tablets in a jar that expand to a full-size towelette with water. And they are disposable. So cool! Ok, maybe I'm a little too excited, but I do think it's a cool idea. They look like large Alka-Seltzer or breath mints. Good thing I didn't try to eat one. :) I shot this with my iPhone 6 Plus.

Similar products can be purchased from Amazon here and here if your so inclined. :)

These could be really dangerous by-the-way, so please keep these away from your pets and small children. 

Here are the Japanese instructions included on the table.
