In Japan, there is vending machine for everything, apparently. I was so surprised to see a vending machine for umbrellas! Very convenient though.
If you want to see other vending machines, I also wrote a post about a Japanese vending machine for beauty products.
i love japan and their vending machine culture. it should be implemented everywhere for convenience, though i suspect this would not be successful in many countries.
I wonder why we don’t have these things in Belgium. Maybe because they would get vandalized in no time?
i would say the same thing would probably happen here in indonesia.
It makes me a bit sad. I wish people would take better care of things and be more respectful. That is one of the things I love about Japan, that people are more respectful in general.
Haha, I have never seen this actually 😀 But it shouldn’t surprise me, Japanese and umbrellas..
They open their umbrella’s even for the thiniest speck of rain. Being from Belgium, where it rains so often, a bit of drizzle doesn’t really prompt me to take out my umbrella.
Same goes from me. I’m a Belgian and living in Japan for now and I sometimes get the question “Why aren’t you carrying an umbrella?” “Erhmn.. because it is barely raining?” 🙂
Sometimes I feel like saying ‘I am not made of sugar’, but sinces it is a Belgian saying literally translated, I doubt they would understand what it means.
Hahaha, exactly!!! I actually said it last time and they were like “huh?” So.. not quite effective
Never seen!! Hilarious.
Yes, several Japanese people have also told me that they have never seen this either. How come I always find the weirdest things? 🙂
