Happy T Day everyone. Last Tuesday I was traveling to Kyoto, Japan and missed out on the T Day fun and our wonderful hostess' bearthday celebration. But I am back today, still a bit jet lagged and still overwhelmed with all the photos I took. But when you don't have a lot of time, fast food is what you might want. Right? Maybe.
Well the Japanese have a unique relationship with fast food.
How about your dinner out of a vending machine? :)
Now I didn't try it, but of course some of the kids had to. They said the food tasted like leftovers you bring home and then reheat in the microwave.
Of course. :) But you have a pretty good selection if you are really hungry.
And to wash down your gourmet meal, you can pick from water, soda or some unique Japanese drinks. I did use a vending machine for drinks many days, but I never did use this one in a hotel that served Japanese beer.
And as you may know, vending machines are everywhere in Japan.
Here's one sitting on the top of a hill. To reach it you had drive up this narrow dirt road that wound back and forth through some orange groves. In most spots this road was only 1 lane wide. Even our van driver (we used the hotel van to get around while we were south in the city of Nichinan at the beginning of the trip) had never been up to this spot.
And yet, sitting in the grassy field where you parked was this vending machine.
The views of Nichinan from beyond this lot were pretty impressive.
So I guess if you are up there on a hot day you can quench your thirst.
And that looks like a cooler on the right side of the sign. Not sure whose that is or why it is there, but I guess you can keep your drink cold.
So stop by Bleubeard and Elizabeth's blog and join in the T Day fun by sharing a drink related post of any kind.
And I will leave you with a few more photos from the the ruins on the top of the hill.
Have a great T Day ladies.
