    The "used" schoolgirl panties one is unbelievable! Holy crap man! I mean, who`s gonna just go up and buy a pair in plain view (not that I would buy them, regardless, but still)?! Different strokes for different folks, I guess.

    That is so cool and yet really scary.
    Takes the embarrassment out of buying condoms from convenience stores, though.
    And the schoolgirl panties...?

    My friend went on a school exchange. You have to be 21 to buy cigarettes in Japan...yet! they have vending machines there with signs that say "do not use if under 21" but no one there to enforce it. She brought back peach cigarettes to try...big surprise when her host sister visited us here she smoked like a chimney.

    maybe because they`re smaller and don`t fight like the males do (which is big bussinnes in japan)

    and i also expected the grab-a-lobster machine, saw that earlier in some magazine

    Have you noticed that so many of these pictures make Japan look really backwoods? I mean, those vending machines look like they`re from 1970-80, and everything around them looks square and gray and from the so-called "Modern" era of architecture?

    Woah. Those are totally awesome.

    Some of them I`ve seen in the US before, though, so they`re not as much of a novelty to me. Like the photo machines, as piratepigz12 said. They have those everywhere.

    I would definitely appreciate the cigarette and alcohol machines here though. And I`d sell my panties anyday!

    I think the drink machine next to the recycle machine where you can drink then recycle to get your money back is an awesome idea.

    we actually have photo printing machines as well as little toys(you can find them in the supermarkets). We have ice cream vending machines and you can get movies too, though you have to return them to the same spot. haha we got a hot dog vending machine outside of a hard wear store. They just got some strange things that I just can`t see buying on the streets in public, but the way they are, I don`t think they really give a f***k.

    Some of the ideas are very clever like the phone charger and the bar thing that stops you from leaving till you`ve paid for your parking! Some are really cool and convenient like the flowers and the film, and some are just way kooky! I feel sorry for the beetles but seriously most of these ideas are really cool. I think the japanese come up with awesome ideas even if they are a bit weird sometimes!
