Japan’s undeserved reputation for being a nation where anything and everything can bought from its omnipresent vending machines might be slightly less undeserved than previously thought if 2ch’s collection of vending machine aberrations is anything to go by:

“Who knows what’ll come out if you order this.”

Adult goods vending machines housed in suitably creepy surroundings:

Dutch wives and costumes feature alongside erotic DVDs…

Customers apparently unwrap them on the “premises.”

The bins variously admonish users “No rubbish!” and “This is not a postbox!”, giving some clue as to what people have been using them for.

Just why this “committee for purifying the youth environment” is so interested in soliciting pornography in place of municipal waste disposal services is something of a mystery.

Vending machine fans should of course be warned that 95% of nation’s machines sell nothing but drinks, tobacco and contraceptives, a winning combination if ever there were one.
