NipponSweat - bottled sweat made in Japan



If your armpits don't produce enough sweat you can buy some here from a machine. .... this is to make sure to get a seat in the crowded trains in Japan without ruining your clothes .....



This was seen in the main train station in Beppu, Japan, a town known for their onsen their public baths were they bathe in hot, very hot mineral water. And of course they sweat a lot there - so they collect the sweat

and sell it right away ... as is seen in this picture. Who wouldn't like to get a seat in thes nice trains ....

To those of you in doubt: NO, this is NOT true!!! It is a joke. Of course the Japanese do NOT drink sweat. This is just a brand !!!!!!!!!

They are very innovative in Japan.

I still remember my trip there in 1990. I especially liked Nikko

How funny that it's called Sweat. Clearly doesn't mean the same thing to them that it does to us in the U.S. :-)

What nice trains!

Oh! Those trains are amazing. Like something out of a science fiction TV show 20 years ago. I loved getting a glimpse of this. What is so everyd day common place in one part of the world is a marvel in another.
