10. Soapy Stairs Game
The more painful the game, the more popular it is with Japanese audiences. The premise is simple enough.
Contestants have to run up some stairs-as long as they don't fall on the greased steps. If they do, it's a painful tumble down toward a pool of water.
11. Human Bowling
It's just like bowling, except that contestants are the bowling balls who rush down a slippery incline in inner tubes to collide with giant pins.
What could go wrong? Which is exactly why Japanese audiences love this game.
