Vending machines in Japan are known for conveniently being just around every corner, but they might as well be known for carrying just about everything as well. While standard beverages go without saying, recent years have seen vending machines in the country dishing out drinkable ramen broth, pizza, and even fancy French gourmet meals.
Twitter user Hirotaka (@tabi_gari) recently stumbled upon a vending machine in a surprising place that has many clamoring for it to be installed throughout the country. While visiting Haneda Airport in Tokyo, Hirotaka found a vending machine that dispenses international airline cuisine!
"While at Haneda airport, I went to check out the "in-flight meals of the world" vending machines that launched this month. You can get a total of five different meals for 980 a person, including Coq Au Vin from France, Paella from Spain, and Gapao rice from Thailand. It'd be great if you could warm it up right there and eat in the airport. Then you could feel international even on domestic flights."
The vending machine itself advertises the meals with the slogan "enjoy your travels in the skies at home", and the series is titled "in-flight meals of the world."
As it turns out from other commenters on Twitter, the vending machine has proved to be a hit with some meals routinely out of stock! Fortunatel, you can buy the exact same meals sold over the counter at the Haneda Airport Terminal 2 "Soraben Koubou" bento store located one floor above the vending machines.
