Makishi Rokugawa says he’s installing the first gold vending machines in central Tokyo so Japanese consumers can invest in “something real.”

Space International Ltd., a company started by Rokugawa with funds from selling novelty USB flash drives, is offering gold or silver to the world’s biggest vending machine market, where consumers can buy anything from drinks and candy to lingerie and fortune-telling printouts.
