The Magical 'Jidouhanbaiki'

Straightaway, from the Land of the Rising Sun, I am penning down my thoughts on one of the most awe-striking features of this land, that is, about the unique device known as the Vending machines (Jidouhanbaiki in Japanese) of Japan. Initially installed by a tobacco vendor in 1888, (in Bakan) now known as Yamaguchi prefecture, vending machines might be quite familiar to a few netizens who keep interest in knowing about this beautiful country. But, experiencing it for real is always extraordinary and I believe it's worth a share.
