Pretty cool gas station, but I will be the first one to admit that not all gas stations in Japan look like this…as you can see though, the gas pump handles are high up instead of being on the ground! The people working at the station pull on the long strings to bring them down, and when they’re finished, they put them back up.
I feel sorry sometimes for these workers, I’ll see them outside in horrible winds waiting for the customer that pulls in and when the lone car does, they give a great big shout of welcome!
By the way, if you’ve never seen the Korean film, Attack the Gas Station, I would say see it, it’s hilarious. 🙂
