From the Artist:

Melon cream soda is always my number one go-to drink at local cafes and restaurants in Japan, ever since I was a child. The history of cream sodas in Japan goes way back in the early 1900s when carbonated water and ice cream were just brought in. Melons and other exotic fruits were a delicacy then, so Meidi-ya, a food importing company, created various colorful fruit syrups. Beautiful bright-colored sodas, especially the green melon flavor, topped with a scoop of ice cream and a little red cherry became very popular amongst the Japanese citizens around Tokyo, as it represented modernization and economic growth of the country.

Today, it is regaining its popularity as the younger generation are praising the Japanese retro styles, foods, and items that bring nostalgic feelings. Regardless, the melon cream soda will always be my favorite special drink!
