Who Wants “Goat Soup” Or “Goat Sashimi” – From A Vending Machine? Here It Is!

Who Wants Some Goat Soup – From A Vending Machine?

Why am I so fascinated by Japanese vending machines? Well, because of the crazy stuff you can find in them – here’s another example!

SoraNews24 Reporter Oona McGee reports on one of the wildest vending machines in a country known for some pretty wild ones!

I just love this story!

The vending machine on the left is located on Japan’s Ishigaki Island – and one Reporter’s fascination with it has led to this.

You see, SoraNews24’s Japanese-language reporter Kouhey visited Ishigaki Island in Okinawa last year, and he got to try the specialty: goat soup!

McGee writes that her fellow Writer Kouhey returned to Ishigaki island – and as Oona reports: “discovered there was a place where he could buy the soup at any time of the day or night — from a vending machine at Misaki Center Street in Misaki Town’s Ishigaki Island Village.”

So here’s what he bought from the vending machine:

A “Goat Soup” Vending Machine – And More!

Yes, Kouhey bought Goat Soup from the machine – and something else as well.

Once he tried the Goat Soup, he topped it off with some Goat Sashimi!

YES: Goat Sashimi!

As I said at the beginning of this story, there are some wild things you can buy in Japanese vending machines – and now you can add Goat Sashimi to the list.

So how did this taste?

SoraNews24 tasted all of it, and you can see their review here!

Oh and a bit of a giveaway – they actually liked it!

So, leave me a comment and tell me: would you try it?

I would! You may know that I’ve had some wild items from Japanese vending machines myself:

Yes, it’s hot creamed corn from a vending machine! See exactly what that means by clicking on mis tory here:

It just gets wilder – for example, have you ever been followed by someone and needed a quick disguise inn order to avoid them?

Yep, the vending machine on the far right is a fake – it’s just a protective cover – see the shoes peeking out underneath!

I’d buy that in a second!

  4. We were fascinated by the vending machines in Japan when we were there 40 years ago. The two things that I remember are that you could buy beer from a vending machine until 1 or 2 am, and they machines selling flat shoes near clubs (for women with sore feet after wearing high heels all night).
