There are several interesting things about this vending machine. One, only cold drinks are offered. That will be switched out pretty soon. Most likely, more than half of the offerings will be hot by a month from now.
Two, this machine accepts Suica electronic money. That is becoming very common in Japan.
Three, although this is a Coca Cola machine coffees, teas and waters all equal or out number cola offerings. This one advertises a European blend for the Georgia canned coffee line.
