There are vending machines everywhere in Japan. This fact is well known, but did you know we have “Rice” vending machines?
These machines in this photo sell 5kg and 10kg table rice. You can find these machines on the streets all over Japan except for central Tokyo. Rice polishing machine is usually placed right next to vending machines. So, if you have brown rice, you can bring it here and have the machine polish and make it white rice.
