I keep hearing that they want to start putting veggies and fruit in vending machines in American junior high schools. They're way ahead of the trend here in Japan.
For just 100 to 200-yen you can buy a bag of fresh mikans. We had already bought some from a farmer's market up the road when we came across this machine, so I can't vouch for the quality. They looked really good though. There was an honor stand up the road as well.
