NEW VENDING MACHINES
New vending machines (to get you "hydrated")
There are more than 5 million vending machines all over Japan, and about 50 percent of which is for drinks (including soft drinks and beer). Easy calculation would say that there is 1 drink vending machine for every 40 people. Number is enough, but here's the high technology version with touch-panel, iPad style!
Coca Cola new style every year
Solar powered vending machines, touch screen vending machines, e-money (touch card) vending machines, and more. One vending machines now can produce 112 different taste to quench your thirst. Haneda Airport has CocaCola managing restaurant called "Airport Diner" which has the new style "fountain" to effect your smooth throat. JPY250 will give you unlimited cups, why not try JPY2 (US$0.02) a flavor to give them your two cents.
Cafe at Convenience Store
In 2015, Seven Eleven and 4 major convenience stores sold more than 1.3 billion cups of coffee all over Japan. Known Seven Cafe has been doing good business, other convenience stores followed. Lawson has Machi Cafe, Familymart has Ajiwai Famima Cafe, Circle K Sunks has Iretate Coffee, Mini Stop has M's Style Coffee. There is no doubt that Japan imports tons of coffee beans. No.1 importer USA, No.2 importer Germany, No.3 Japan! Can of coffee? or Convenient coffee?

JR is installing new high-tech vending machines throughout their railway lines. Touch screen panel (yes, just like your iPad and iPhone) shows what you need to drink when you stand in front of the computerized machine. How would they guess which drink you would prefer? There is a camera installed which would detect and assume your age and gender, based on their rough (sometime accurate?) judge, they will introduce you the best appropriate drink. You may get beer?! Just touch it on the monitor, and swing your Suica Card, you'll be happily fulfilled by the liquid. Due to possible power shortage, they may NOT be operating 01:00AM - 05:00AM in some area. Under the circumstances of all the 50 nuclear power plants are under maintenenace or shutting-down process, only 60 percent of full blast is needed to operate the new vending machine compare to the old machine, yes, save energy sell more drink!
