French Fries from a Japanese Vending Machine

Furaido Poteto

Here are some French fries from a Japanese vending machine. Not surprisingly, they were a bit soggy like when you microwave leftover fries. But they did come out piping hot (and with a little packet of salt on the side). And for the purposes of a quick midnight snack, they served their purpose, even if 450 Yen (US$3.90) does seem a bit pricey.

mmmm... from the box: fu-rie-do po-ta-to

I always appreciated the vending machines with hot drinks (especially hot milk tea) when living in Japan. But, I think they wouldn't be as popular in the current Japanese heat wave!
