Umbrella Vending Machine?


Guess what is this?? Yeap, The Legendary Umbrella Vending Machine!!!

Swt…  This is the first time I seeing such machine in my life. Japan is really fantastic, they can even vending Umbrella with machine…

Found this machine at 蕨駅 (Warabi-Eki) few days ago and think it’s good to show you all strange things in Japan. They put this machine at Train station so you don’t have to worry even if the weather suddenly turn bad.


You can buy an umbrella with 450 Yen through this vending machine.

Weather forecast in Japan is almost accurate. If you saw everyone is bringing an umbrella with them, then you should hurry up buy/go back your house taking your umbrella with you. Why do I said so is because It’s almost sure that it will be rain that day since everyone can check on the weather forecast through the net, Train station, and news.


The foldaway type’s umbrella cost 1000 yen.


And the detailed instruction on how to using the vending machine.(all in Japanese though…)

In Malaysia, we get to know tomorrow’s weather by the weather forecast. On the other hand, We get to know tomorrow’s weather together with temperature of EVERY HOUR in Japan. They are really doing a good job on providing those infos.


You can see that it will rain tomorrow around 12.00 p.m. so I did better get my umbrella ready.

*Been put on First Class at my Japanese course so getting quite stress. I never been a top student before so suddenly being one is quite uncomfortable. Will work hard to keep my rank at first class. (Felt tired sometimes though.)
