Temps reached an all-time high of 106 degrees Fahrenheit (41.1 degrees Celsius) in Kumagaya, just outside of Tokyo, on July 23.

Since the end of April, over 71,000 people have been hospitalized for heat-related illnesses — and at least 138 of them have died.

These plastic matcha lattes in a display case at Oasis 21 in Nagoya began oozing out as the temp inside reached a scorching 140 degrees.

Made from silicone and vinyl chloride, they just couldn’t withstand the extreme heat.

Even more surprising is the fact that people were able to photograph the fake food — heat rising from the ground has blurred photos so much that it looks like EVERYTHING is melting.
