Memories for Sale

Modern Japan is all about convenience, and nothing is more indicative of this than the vending machines found in train stations, malls, parking garages -- anywhere the public gathers. They offer the usual snacks and beverages, but also some unexpected wares. For tourists who want a reminder of their trip to Tokyo, vending machines offer many colorful souvenirs, sold in a distinctly Japanese manner.
