Going bananas with a vending machine

A vending machine selling fresh bananas, the first of its kind outside Tokyo, has debuted in the Tenjin downtown area in the city of Fukuoka, selling bunches for ¥390.

Dole Japan Inc., which set up the vending machine Monday, hopes the novel device will, like a machine in the Shibuya district in Tokyo, attract young people.

That one, set up in June, sold around 9,000 bananas in the first month.
