Ion Supply Drink

In Japan, 7-11 stores are everywhere. This is a quick snap taken at a one of these stores in Motohakone. Motohakone is a small resort town on the shores of Lake Ashi known primarily for it’s hot springs.

I decided to be adventurous. Pocari Sweat is, basically, just clear gatorade.

Incidently, in the lower left-hand corner of the frame, you can see the only diet drink available in Japan: Coke Zero. However, there it’s marketed as a health drink and not a diet beverage. It’s hard to sell diet drinks to a population that’s so skinny.
