Sharing my love for Japanese drink machines almost slipped my mind until I found this picture hiding in my photo files. The idea is the same: you put money in, push a button, then a drink dispenses. But oh how the experiences differ between America and Japan! The variety, color, and aesthetic design of the beverage machines make quenching your thirst far more interesting and entertaining. Good job Japanese marketers: you convinced a girl who swears by her bobble water bottle to cave and buy some sugary drinks.
