Won't Miss #8 - vending machine blight

While the weird vending machines are a curiosity, the overwhelming majority of vending machines in Tokyo are an endless array of drink machines. Sure, it's kind of neat the first time you see hot soup or coffee sold in them in winter or beverages you rarely see back home sold in them. That lasts a short while and then you just see ugly, lighted refrigerators wasting energy, blocking pedestrian walking space and bike parking space and making the view cluttered and unappealing.

I won't miss seeing so many vending machines uselessly placed everywhere.
