Banana Vending Machine Doles Out Fruits in Japan

Apparently, the Japanese enjoy vending machines so much that they keep coming up with new things to sell in them. Take for instance, Dole, who has just announced that they will be selling bananas through vending machines in Japan. It’s interesting, but I’d just pop by to see a human fruit vendor instead, not a robotic one.

The specialized banana machine maintains bananas at their ideal temperature of 55.4 degrees Farenheit, and sells bananas for ¥130 (appx. $1.50 USD) a piece or ¥390 (appx. $4.50) for a bunch.

There are many people who rely on vending machines for sustenance during the day, especially office workers and students. You don’t always have a choice. I know the feeling. A few snacks could allow you to continue working, and I suppose bananas are healthier than Snickers or Twinkies.

Still, the banana machine doesn’t make much sense to me. Bananas can go bad pretty quickly. It makes more sense to go find a fruit vendor and get your bananas there. In Asia, there are fruit vendors all over the place. In Taiwan, you can find them almost everywhere, if you know where to look.
