As we’ve mentioned in the past, Japan’s population is aging and will continue to get much older going forward.  This has led to some rather interesting counter-aging trends, including the continued development of advanced robotics to aid workforce productivity and the rising popularity of collagen-based consumer products. We can now add IV drip cafes to this list:

Tenteki10, located in the swank area of Ebisu, Tokyo, offers customers a walk-in service that features IV drips starting at 2,000 yen ($20). The service is meant to provide a skin care boost, act as an anti-aging remedy and alleviate stress and exhaustion. Administered by on-site nurses, this could be the perfect way for hypochondriac, futurist, medical fetishists (yes, that is a real sub-culture) to get their fix in one shot.
