Japanese Gastronomical & Vending Machine Culture

Recommended Posts

Eating out in Japan is quite interesting. Many restaurants have elaborate displays of its menu along the windows. You can find everything from traditional Japanese sushi and noodles to delicious desserts.

Japan's vending machine culture is quite amazing. You can buy so many things and these machines are everywhere. They're very convenient.

Beer anyone?

The ice cream vending machine. For only 110 yen you can choose from a wide array of flavours. I had a strawberry sorbet but there are more exotic combinations that are not very typical in the Western world.

I had my first beer when I was 14 in a hotel in Narita: a can of Budweiser that cost about $4, purchased from a vending machine.

It's interesting that Japan's vending machine culture is in complete contrast to China's almost complete lack of any sort of vending machines. One chooses automation and convenience over the extra employment.
