Japanese Farmer Grows His Own Rice For His Lone Curry Vending Machine
In Japan, vending machines generally sell beverages and simple, readymade provisions. But fresh curry over rice?
Along a lonely stretch of highway in Awa-shi, Japan, you’ll find a rare vending machine. The vending machine owner, Tadashi Yoshimoto, grows the rice in every meal just down the road on his own farm.
In a country that prides itself on the freshness of its food, Yoshimoto has set a new standard for readymade fare.
