Why are there many vending machines in Japan?

Vending machines can be found anywhere in Japan.

自販機

Most beverage vending machines sell green tea, water, coffee, energy drinks and other soft drinks like cola.  Some vending machines speak.  It’s like ‘Good morning.  Start a wonderful day with a drink.  Take care!’  It is the morning version.  They talk differently in the afternoon and evening.  There are even smart vending machines which can choose your beverage according to your mood and taste.

Now, I have a suggestion.  Don’t look down on the canned coffee of  vending machines.  They are tasty enough to cater to many Japanese coffee fans.  And I have seen many foreign coffee lovers surprised at its quality.  I really like to see their reactions^^

Vending machines are a symbol of Japan’s safety.  It is said that thanks to small number of robbery, such many vending machines can be installed on the streets.
