Japan must love vending machines a lot! They allow vending machines to bill you via your veins, they have cameras installed in them, and the list just goes on. Now, you can purchase bananas from this vending machine, located in Shibuya.

Dole, the world’s largest producer and marketer of high-quality fresh fruit and fresh vegetables says the bananas have sold out every single day since the machine’s debut on June 23.

For a single banana, the cost is 130 yen and 390 yen for a 600-gram bunch containing around four to five pieces of fruit. The bananas are stored at an ideal temperature of 55.4 degrees Fahrenheit.

Do you rely on vending machines to purchase stuff? I seen vending machines offering snacks and drinks here. When I was studying late in school, I had to resort to buying some snacks via the vending machine when all the stalls in the canteen were closed. They’re pricey for a small packet of snacks >_<.
