These trains were introduced in the stationery king, Bungu-o’s blog.
Look at the whole bodies.
These look plastic models or toys but actually…
Plastic bottled tea!
The green one is a train of JR [W:Yamanote Line], which is probably the most famous rail line.
As you can see, the front part is a cap and the rest part is an ordinary plastic bottle.
The cap should be used as a cup but it’s not.
It reminded Bungu-o the tea bottle with a cup sold at station with ekiben (bento to eat in a train).
(I wish I had a picture to show it but I couldn’t find it. Sorry!)
The price of the train shaped plastic bottled tea was 358 yen (US$3.80).
A regular bottled tea costs about 150 yen (US$1.60), so it costs twice.
It’s a little expensive, isn’t it!?
Have you seen train shaped bottled drink in your country?
Or other kind unique bottles?
If so, please tell me! (^_^)
