Where to Find Them (Shimizu Lemonade Museum)

These lemonades are available in Shimizu lemonade museum located in Shizuoka Prefecture. In the museum you will learn about the history of lemonade in Japan and get to know different flavours of lemonade. A wide variety of lemonades, souvenirs and lemonade glass marble are being sold there. (Lemonade glass marble was invented during the old times because back then the sealing technology of bottles were not quite advanced yet, so they invented the glass marble to be put at the neck of the bottle to prevent gas from going in and out.)
