Japanese Vending Machines

Vending machines are all over the place in Japan. In some places they light up the streets. Drinks machines have a variety of extra features, usually offering both cold and hot drinks and sometimes having features to allow the customer to adjust how the drink is prepared as in the vending machine above. Beyond the world of soft drinks, there are vending machines in Japan for all sorts of things from alcohol to rice to magazines to even eggs.
