I am always impressed by the vending machines in Japan.
The drinks vending machines come in many different shapes and designs - some look like a Pepsi can, some have traditional Japanese "roofs", others look like a bottle of drink.. etc..
Some interesting vending machines
And the things they sell!
I've seen vending machines for ice-cream, for fried and baked food like fries and tako-yaki, for soup, for beer and cocktails and even for piping hot noodles!
Fries, Hot Dog Buns and Tako-yaki
Even the regular drink vending machines can be very cool.. They sell interesting drinks like limited edition flavours, tie-ups with cartoon or movie characters etc.
I couldn't help taking photos of some of the more interesting ones I came across..
Anyone remember Ultraman?
Limited edition drinks - Sakura Milk Tea and Fauchon Apple Tea
