A Love of Japanese Vending Machines

Kotaku EastEast is your slice of Asian internet culture, bringing you the latest talking points from Japan, Korea, China and beyond. Tune in every morning from 4am to 8am.

While some Japanese vending machines are under fire for offering sexy good times, the vast, vast majority of vending machines offer only beverages.

Good times, though! You can buy either cold or hot canned drinks. I've always been fascinated about being able to buy a can of hot coffee. It's truly marvelous.

And sometimes you come across wonderful drinks like these. Kamen Cider anyone?

Note: this originally appeared on my Instagram (apologies to those who already saw it there!).

Well that answers that. :P
