Photo by WIRED.Canned Japanese curry. I'm not sure what to think about this.
Sure, Japan has vending machines for almost anything you can think of - from batteries to booze. At one vending machine in Shibuya, actual humans dispense umbrellas (that's right - a live jack-in-the-box).
But back to the curry: WIRED's Daniel Feit reports that the liquid concoction is little more than bland soup. Everything tastes the same, and the fake rice is especially disappointing. This is one curry-in-a-hurry not worth trying.
