Tokyo and Kyoto Drinks of the Day

Aside from being the Land of the Rising Sun, Japan is also the Land of Vending Machines. The amount of vending machines is surprisingly insane, I doubt that this photoset can give it justice.

Unlike its North American counterpart, the drink options available in Japanese vending machines are endless. While I personally prefer water (flavored or not), the coffee and milk tea-dominated selection was my instant favorite.

I had this crazy idea of documenting the drinks I had during my stay. Some of my options were pretty straightforward (e.g. water, milk tea, coffee) or recommended by my friends, but my other choices were based from the ingredients/flavor listed or the product packaging. 😉

There were times where I just chose whatever because I was desperate to get myself a drink (damn Japan knows how to spell the word H-U-M-I-D!).
