🇯🇵 Japan has the highest density of vending machines worldwide with over 5.5 MILLION of them 😳 There’s literally one (or 2, or 3, or sometimes 4) at every corner!! At some point I didn’t even notice them anymore because you just get sooo used to them haha. But Japan is actually not the country with THE MOST machines 🇺🇸 The US is #1 with about 7 million, but obviously the land is much bigger than Japan, so you don’t see them that often. . .
The ones that we saw in Tokyo mostly sold all kinds of drinks. But apparently there are also ones that sell food, electronic stuff, and so on. Was actually super convenient to be able to buy something 24h without searching for a store that is open at the weird times that we were awake 🌙 .
And fun fact: the bottles in the front were just plastic mockups (basically empty bottles cut in half) 😅 and the real ones are somewhere in the back .
