Umbrella vending machines!
These are umbrella vending machines. They are not really unusual in Japan. People find them convenient especially during times of sudden downpours and you forgot to bring your precious umbrella. These vendos dispense compact and stylish umbrellas which come in different colors. Some other umbrella vending machines sell the usual, non-compact transparent umbrellas you commonly see in your favorite Japanese dramas.
