Rachelle was forever making fun of me because of my obsession with the vending machines in Japan.
They are EVERYWHERE!
We didn’t see any of the rumoured machines with more questionable merchandise.
But you will never go thirsty in Japan. No matter where you go, you are likely only steps away from a row of machines serving up a wide selection of beverages. You can even choose if you want your canned coffee heated or chilled.
Less often, we came across machines serving ice cream or smoothies. Oddly, we never saw snack machines with chocolate bars or chips. Then again, chocolate bars, aside from KitKat (which comes in every flavour imaginable), are really not very popular in Japan.
