I don’t know how, in my last post about vending machines, I could have forgotten pan-in-a-can!
This was certainly an unusual vending machine find (and all credit goes to Don for spotting it):
Not only does the top row shown here feature various canned stews, but that bottom row features bread. In a can. (And it ain’t cheap: at 430¥ it’s more expensive than the main-course-in-a-can, and in USD is $5.60.)
The machine was located just beside our favorite soft serve ice cream stand in the park (much more about those flavors at a later date!) – so you could feasibly have dinner, side dish and dessert right by Inokashira Lake.
