The vast majority of vending machines in Japan have drinks or cigarettes. But some of them offer other items. This one, for example, has crepes. That's right. Crepes.
Spotted in Kagoshima by blog Kansaitei Kyushu, this refrigerated vending machine offers different crepes, from mixed fruit and chocolate banana to plain chocolate sauce and caramel pudding. They cost 200 yen a pop, which is under US$2.
Online, people say this vending machine's crepes are delicious.
Crepe vending machines are quite rare, which is probably why this fella wanted his picture with the one in Kagoshima.

The crepe comes in a glass bin, with a label asking you to return it. There is a plastic crate next to the vending machine where you can deposit the bin when you're finished.
This is mixed fruit and cream.
This isn't the only crepe vending machine in Japan. There are others, such as...
