Crepe Vending Machine
I haven't seen something like this before. The machine is advertising fresh crepes and other snacks. Most of the flavors are chocolate or cream cheese, with one blueberry crepe. 200 yen each.
The crepe is wrapped in plastic and placed inside a recycled 1-cup sake glass. I got the chocolate and whipped creme crepe. It's 95% whipped cream, with a thin crepe on the outside, and a slice of chocolate bar in the middle. Not bad, and pretty filling, but I wouldn't pay more than $1 if I were getting something like this in the States. Then again, you'd never find a vending machine selling fresh crepes in recycled sake cups in the States, either... There's a plastic rack next to the machine to put the discard glasses into.
