VENDING MACHINE

自動販売機[JIDŌHAMBAIKI]

Japan has the highest number of vending machines per capita in the world with an estimated millions or more machines all over the country, including at the top of Mt. Fuji. Vending machines sell a wide range of products from soft drinks and alcoholic beverages to ice cream and snacks to instant food and cigarette. Mary cannot stop taking photos of vending machines because of her total fascination. “You can buy both hot and cold drinks from the same machine?” “Vending and slot machine together?” She inserted coins to get a bottle of mineral water, and the slot machine rolled to display the jackpot combination of 7-7-7. She won and got another bottle for free!
