This is a short little post to show you a vending machine that I saw on my way to Ueno Zoo. I want to say this machine was at Ueno Station, but I can’t remember for sure. Though definitely not the weirdest type of vending machine Japan has to offer*, it’s a kind I’ve never seen before. This is a vending machine that sells books! Pretty darn neat if you ask me. I just wonder what all Japanese people sell in vending machines. I’m anxiously awaiting the day when I can buy candy from a vending machine. Wouldn’t it be so cool to walk up to a machine…with buttons…where you could just press it and VOILA, out pops the candy bar of your choice? Hmm? It’s already been done? Crap, there goes my million dollar idea 🙁
*I’d say the weirdest vending machines are the ones that sell used panties. People thought they didn’t exist…but they do. From what I understand they can be found inside Japanese adult-themed stores. I haven’t seen one in person, but that’s what I’ve heard.
