The way Japanese swings are put together fascinates me.
Oh wow. You probably can't swing way too high on those.

Really? This design would have less friction than western chain swings.

Nonetheless they won't bend as much because there's not as many partitions. It's probably meant for lighter swinging.

Not to mention the seat needs to be rubber or you'll hurt your ass.
I have seen this type of swing on American playgrounds.

Where at? Not doubting you, I've just never seen them on American TV or on any playgrounds in my area.
TBH i think the design was meant to reduce the % it twists and the possible hazard of children accidentally (while unlikely) choke themselves or someone else.

we have a lot of swings either broken, twisted up so badly it got sealed off and never got repaired, or simply no longer built in newer playgrounds in hong kong now.

man i mean i kinda miss those 3m tall chain swings where some ass kids would stand and do a near 180 or spin like a mofo and then fall flat after getting off :v

Actually a quick GIS reveals the only ones for sale are used ones on e-bay. Anything new doesn't use long-links like that. I can't say why. My own memory of it was when was a kid visiting playgrounds at other kids' schools.

No doubt the designs from 50+ years ago are what Japan copied for their own use and they never saw a need to "upgrade."
