Japanese convenience store, FamilyMart, just announced they are installing charging stations for next‐generation vehicles (EV, Electric Vehicle/ PHEV, Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle) at roughly 500 of its stores all over Japan after this summer.
As of this month, 34 FamilyMart stores already have charging stations installed.
In Japan, there are lots of restaurants offering an all-you-can-eat or all-you-can-drink service, which means you can eat as much Yakiniku (Japanese BBQ), sushi, alcoholic drinks or sweets as you want (menu differs depending on the restaurant) for a certain amount of time. However, we have never heard of an All-you-can-eat Convenience Store…
The convenience store chain, FamilyMart started accepting advanced orders for the Hatsune Miku Original Digital Piano by KORG (model SP-280F). This product is a collaboration between the Japanese musical instrument manufacture KORG and FamilyMart.
The Hatsune Miku Original Digital Piano by KORG is made based on KORG's full-fledged digital piano SP-280 and colored in Hatsune Miku colors. It plays 30 different kinds of sounds.
Sakura-Miku-Man is back! Now available at Family Mart.
Last March, Family Mart released the cutest An-man (a steamed bun with a redbean jam filling) in collaboration with Hatsune Miku.
Because Sakura (cherry blossom) season is just around the corner, this An-man's Hatsune Miku has pink colored hair, not the usual turquoise hair. Therefore, it's called Sakura-Miku-Man. Her famous pigtails are recreated on Sakura-Miku-Man.
After Family Mart released Warsman and Ramenman collaborated steamed buns last year, finally a steamed bun of the leading star Kinnikuman from the anime series "Kinnikuman" will be released for 180 yen on January 14.
The beef based stuffing is seasoned with the flavor of Gyu-don (beef bowl). Gyu-don is Kinnikuman's favorite dish and appears often in the pages of the series.
