Mini meals in Japan

My favorite thing to do when I’m in Japan is to visit a vending machine every day. Especially during cold winter days, a hot can of soup cupped in your hands can be the best comfort food ever. A can a day keeps the doctor away! !^_^v

Wanderer of lands, searcher of souls. Last seen tree hugging and running wild into the mountains. Might have eaten all the ice cream in the tub.
