Vending machines usually have a wide variety of drinks such as coffee, soda, juice, etc… but not this one.
A vending machine placed in Ochanomizu Station in Tokyo (JR line) carries only “tea” and “water”!
This has to do with the name of the station, Ochanomizu (御茶ノ水): ocha meaning tea and mizu meaning water.
The station will mark its 110th anniversary on December 31, 2014 and this is part of the project for the anniversary event.
Today, on December 13, 2014, there will be an event at the station. If you’re in Tokyo now, it will be an interesting place to stop by!!
(Ochanomizu Station is located along the JR Chuo line or JR Sobu line).
