We have been amazed to run into an impressive array of colorful vending machines selling all sorts of things: hodgepodge, noodles, miso soup, corn soup, red bean soup with rice cakes — you name it.  Sounds good especially in winter?   Perhaps a quick and cheap lunch option for some.

Speaking of quick and cheap lunch…  Tokyo is filled with fancy restaurants, but there seems to be no need to spend that much money when one can buy “obento” (as shown here) for less than 400 yen.

Seeing these goodies at a grocery store reminds me that we will be celebrating the New Year’s Day (the biggest holiday here) soon.   (But Daniel was dismayed to discover that Christmas Day is just another school day in Japan.)
