Anyone who knows Japan knows that it’s the vending machine capitol of the world. From floral arrangements to puppies, there’s nothing you can’t get from a vending machine there.

Now, you can also get a date

If you’re looking for your future partner, hop on a plane (with the appropriate Covid-19-related authorisations) and head on down to Japan. Leave the dating apps behind because you could potentially find a girlfriend, boyfriend, husband or wife through a vending machine!

Vending 1

SoraNews24 shared that the vending machine dispenses cans, costing 3,000 yen (RM108.74), with colours based on gender and information on the potential match displayed on cards. The can’s label, on the other hand, displays a message from a matchmaking service, as they mediate the interaction between the match and the ‘buyer’.

Vending 4

“I am advisor Ishikawa. There is a 27-year-old woman who wants to get married. Won’t you meet with her? I will advise you.”

The vending machine also showcases pictures and names of the matches.


Once you buy a can

Vending 5

You’ll have to sit through a 1-hour interview and advice session with a matchmaker before they allow for a meet up with the match. A 3-hour dinner date will be arranged where you’ll have to foot the dinner bill and an additional 9,000 yen (RM326.23) service fee.

While it is unsure what happens if sparks don’t fly with your match, if you do end up marrying your match, you’ll also be looking at a “successful marriage award payment” of 300,000 yen (RM10,874.27).

That’s a whopping total of RM11,309.24 to find love.


So hey, if you’re ever in Japan and feeling a little lonely, give this vending machine a try and who knows, you might just find the one! Also, let us know how that goes. 

I guess there really is a vending machine for everything in Japan!
