In Japan there is one vending machine for every 23 people that live there. In Tokyo alone there are over 400 000 machines dispensing a variety of goods. The most popular machines of course supply drinks and snacks, but over my three weeks there, I found some very unique products for sale. Here are some of the types of vending machines that I discovered.
Cup of Noodles
Vacuum cleaner bags
I’m not 100% what this one is but our best guess was insulation
(My Friend Paul who is living in Japan at the moment has since informed me that this is actually rice!)
