Tamahagane steel (i.e. japanese sword smithing) simply because it takes steel manufacture and technology to such an extreme that it becomes an artform.

Does creating a nuclear meltdown count?
MOX fuel is used by Japanese as well as other countries EXCEPT the USA.

They have some pretty spectacular earthquake proofing of skyscrapers.

The hybrid car concept may have been from elsewhere, but I believe that Honda and Toyota were the first to actually push it to market.

What about folded steel sword blades?  Oh, was that one mentioned?

Mid European Iron-age smiths used layering, twisting, and folding techniques.  And wootz steel of bce India was layered and folded to create steel blades of unsurpassed edge and flexibilty.  I think that the Japanese turned it into an artform and imbued it with spirituality and mysticism
