Drinking Made (Really) Easy: Vending Machines in Japan

0 comments

In Japan, vending machines are located on every street no more than about 20 feet apart from each other, so you are sure to never go thirsty…or hungry…or if so inclined, sober. These machines sell everything from water and juice to coffee and even hot soup. But most importantly, many of these machines dispense beer (with some also being home to sake or more). We say come on America, take note from our friends in the land of the rising sun and follow suit. People are trying to get rid of soda in school vending machines, which is great, but isn’t it time to add a few adult beverages to some of our public drink service machines? Craft beer on the go sounds great to us. What do you guys think?
