One Of A Kind


Did you know- there’s vending machines all over Japan where you can get hot drinks and meals quickly and cheaply at street corners on your way to work?! This restaurant takes the craze to a new level with an actual restaurant only serving food via the cash-only machines. You can get the likes of ‘pizza toast’, burgers and ramen noodles for as little as 300 yen- that’s just A$3.80! It’s called Jihanki Shokudo, and is said to be super clean despite the lack of staff. Towel wipes are available for customers to wipe up the table after themselves, and there’s an array of complimentary chopsticks, napkins and condiments to have with your meal- as well as comic books!
