There are many kinds of vending machines on the street in Japan
How is your country?
If there are not many, Why?

In Sweden, no. There are vending machines at stations and airports and such. But in the streets no.

Why? Because we have real shops.

There are no shops every 50 m in Sweden. In Japan there wending shops like every 20 meters, it's very convenient.

In the Netherlands.

We called it 'automatiek'.

Non-food products


Most popular are the fastfood automatieks. You will find this in every Dutch city/villages/stations/gas stations, etc. I guess there are thousands food automatics machines through out the country.








Asian food

In Germany cigarettes are widely sold by vending machines. There are around 360,000 of them all over Germany. A decade ago or so even children could have bought cigarettes, but today all machines are required to check your age by your debit/credit card or driving license:









Cigarette machines within bars or restaurants are mostly made of plastic whereas those outdoor are made from steel.

Not on the streets, as those are in Japan... they would get broken into if they did that here but they're in shopping centres, in shops, airports, train stations, etc.

I don't think i've ever seen a vending machine on the street in Australia. Like Dime said, i'm pretty sure that in Australia (or any Western country) they would get broken into.

Same here.

I remember seeing a few vending machines on the street when I went to Abu Dhabi, that was the only time I saw them.

The japanese are very law-abiding people. Hence why Japan has almost no crime.

That's not really true, Japan has crime, just it tends to be underreported. For example, a lot of murders are classified as 'missing persons' if they are never brought to full conclusion, even when there has clearly been a killing. There is a fair amount of corruption, look at the power of the Yakuza and the scandal over the Sumo rigging. Japan also has had more than its fair share of serial killers and terrorist attacks, and it is not immune from social problems.

Vending machines here are pretty lame.
I'm super jealous of Japanese ones.
Please send some this way.

1950s vending machines are my kind of machine though! Round things like that are so appealing.

As said, they're only really in train stations, shopping centres, schools etc.

7-Elevens are far more common
