The Odd One Out...

Can you spot the real vending machine?

It's the 3rd one on the left!
I noticed this in Shinjuku recently - it was on the fencing surrounding a construction site. A very creative use of space, I thought.

    What a wonderful idea - do people try to use the fake ones :-)

    Wow, I've never seen anything like that before. I wonder if sales went down for the real machine once it was surrounded by fakes...

    I actually hung around nearby for a while to see if anyone was tricked by the fakes...but no one even looked at them - I guess they were scared away by the lurking gaijin :p
