Japans first banana vending machine installed in Shibuya

Japan’s first banana vending machine has been installed in Shibuya, near the Hanzomon Line gate. Dole, the world’s largest producer and marketer of high-quality fresh fruit and fresh vegetables says the bananas have sold out every single day since the machine’s debut on June 23. The cost is 130 yen( $1.45) for a single banana and 390 yen ($4.43) for a 600-gram bunch containing four to five pieces of fruit. Dole says it plans to sell other fruit products in vending machines in locations like universities and office buildings.
