OK, I am curious... lucky for me there is a Seven-Eleven about 100m from my home (OK, well, almost EVERYONE in Japan has a convenience store 100m from home Laughing )


Canned oxygen sales aim to lift tired Japanese

TOKYO (Reuters) - Exhausted Japanese workers in need of a pick-me-up will soon be able to get a hit of canned oxygen at their local convenience store.

Seven-Eleven Japan will start marketing the new product, "O2 Supli," at select stores in the Tokyo area later this month and expand sales nationwide in June.

"People are under a lot of stress and can't get much exercise, so they aren't getting enough oxygen," said Minoru Matsumoto, a spokesman for Seven & I Holdings Co Ltd, Seven-Eleven's parent company.

"This is especially true of people who do long hours of desk work in front of a computer. They don't breathe that deeply."

The oxygen will be sold for 600 yen (about US$5.10) in 3.2-litre spray cans of 95 percent pure oxygen, each of which comes with a small plastic mask attached to the top.

Users place the mask over their mouth and nose, then push a nozzle, which dispenses the oxygen for two to three seconds.

Each can contains enough oxygen for about 35 doses, in either a grapefruit or peppermint fragrance.

"The peppermint should be really good for mornings when you're tired, or when you're driving, or when you really have to concentrate," Matsumoto said.

"The grapefruit should be good before you do sports or while you're working really late."

People involved in product testing gave favourable reports, Matsumoto said, noting that he had tried it himself.

"Everyone found it extremely refreshing," he added.

I wish they would sell it in the land of Oz as I can still clearly remember the effect of being on oxygen in hospital and it is like it is the first time you have ever breathed pure clean air.

Ditto, pure oxygen anyways.

The air we breath is more nitrogen than oxygen, if I remember correctly. I think 7 Eleven has some great marketing strategies. Heck, why not just learn some deep breathing techniques? Seems alot easier to me. Save your $$ for SKINCARE Yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!! LOL

I agree with that as well. The amount of oxygen is low when counting all the other elements as well as pollutions that exist in the air we breathe. Some might look at that as a negative, but while there are a lot of bad things in the air, i wouldn't be sucking on pure oxygen all the time even if you payed me. because i'm too lazy to word this, i thought i would just search it on the next to explain the reason oxygen in its pure gaseous state is not a healthy:

"Oxidizers and other corrosives are abundant in a research setting. Oxygen gas, necessary for life as we know it, is present in the atmosphere along with Nitrogen, Carbon Dioxide and a few other gases. The amount of Oxygen is less than 21% of the total mixture. This quantity is sufficient to cause metal to rust, fires to burn out of control, and certain foods to turn sour. Consider a source of nearly-pure Oxygen, at more than 150 times normal atmospheric pressure. This would be the realm of the compressed Oxygen cylinder. An enriched Oxygen environment can be a fire or explosion hazard."

Though people would be putting pure oxygen in their bodies opposed to it existing in the atmosphere...thinking about what negative things oxygen by itself can do, i wouldn't feel necessarily like i was doing myself good by using it to relieve my stress.
