GAS Pumps

On the way to the Tokyo Tower, from the street corner in yesterday's photo, I came across this interesting and surprising sight. These are clearly pumps for delivering hydrogen to vehicles.

Must admit I knew nothing of this but I now discover Honda have a facility here that dispenses hydrogen directly into fuel cell vehicles such as Honda’s own FCX Clarity and that it is said there will be over 60 such filling stations in the UK by 2020. Wonder what else I don't know ?!

I have never seen these pumps before. They are like super size battery cells.

@Hiro: Thank you for the link. An interesting video. Iwatani seems to be embracing this opportunity to promote the use of hydrogen.

An alternative for the future, less polluting. Japan are pioneers in this subject
