In Japan, a variety of vending machines are everywhere in abundance and have long become commonplace. But vending machines in Tokyo's Kamata district have recently attracted particular attention from the Internet community. At first glance, they are not particularly different from the rest. Inside there are drinks in jars, but they are much more expensive than in other vending machines. The secret of unusual jars is that they connect lonely hearts. Find out how this happens from our material.

Unusual vending machines were invented and installed by Matching Advisor Press, a dating service that helps Japanese people to establish serious relationships and create families.

The showcase is filled with jars, but, in fact, there are no drinks in them. Instead, anyone can buy a chance to meet a potential soul mate. Pink jars represent girls who are looking for a partner, and beige ones represent men. The age is written on each of them. One such jar costs 3000 yen (about 2000 rubles).

Of course, buying does not guarantee that you will find the love of your life. In fact, this is a coupon for an interview and consultation with a dating service employee, whose name is also indicated on the label. It will help determine compatibility with a potential partner. Then the dating service can arrange a date for an additional fee of 9000 yen (6000 rubles). Drinks and food must also be paid for by the customer.

Only the age of the girl or man is indicated on the label, and on the sticker at the bottom of the jar there is a photo of the candidate and the phone number of the dating service consultant.

Representatives of the Matching Advisor Press company will require an additional fee if the pair develops. If the clients get married, they will have to pay another 300,000 yen (195,000 rubles) for a "successful marriage". But, so far, the dating service does not report successful unions.

Meanwhile, a vending machine has appeared in Australia where you can buy courage, friendship and confidence. Instead of harmful chips, he gives out "snacks" to suit the mood.
