Right next to the beer-machine is a fridge full of chilled glasses. Funny thing is, during the crisis, one of the biggest complaints from the Japanese passengers was that the beer glass in the fridge was still warm! Chilled beer glasses over showers! Ha, there's my fellow countrymen!
Once you take the glass out of the fridge, you set it in its designated spot on the machine...
and hit the Go button.
The glass tilts on its own and beer comes out of the left spout.
Just as the glass is about to get full, the machine tilts one more time. This time, foam comes out of the right spout, and voila~! A perfectly poured glass of beer with a lusciously enticing foamy head!
I had a few of these the first night, but I decided that I really needed all of my wits to get out of the airport on my second night - I decided to hold off on the drinks until we were in the air, just in case... Must've been some kind of premonition for my looming doom. It was a good thing I stayed away from the beer-machine, because sure enough - my flight didn't go on Round 2 either!
I have close to 200 more pictures from my stay in Japan, so come back soon for more MED - Japan 2006!
