For convenience

Vending machines: Being a tourist is tough, and you often get thirsty. Lucky for us tourists, Japan has solved this problem with a pretty simple concept – food & beverage vending machines. In large cities like Tokyo, expect to see a vending machine every 5 metres (not kidding). My first of many encounters with a vending machine was shortly after arriving at Narita airport. We had to follow this asphalt running track (yes Japan is… different, you get used to it) to the airport train, and after about 5 minutes of walking in humid weather, we got thirsty. And as if it were a miracle, a vending machine appeared, offering us about 20 different drink options – bottled green tea, Dr Pepper, milk tea (which is delicious), and cans of iced coffee were just some of our options. All for about 100 Yen each ($1.25 AUD). We continued walking to discover another 10 vending machines, and we soon realised this wasn’t a miracle, it was Japan. And don’t stress if you’re hungry or need toilet paper, these delightful machines literally sell everything. Sapporo beer, hot soup, hot dogs, and even freshly made butterscotch mocha.
