I found this vending machine on the streets in Nagoya. It is selling one thing, a hot sauce called Sriracha. Sriracha is a spicy sauce which is made from chili peppers, vinegar, garlic, sugar and salt. It originally comes from Thailand, but a Vietnamese man started making it in the US, and now it is almost as popular as Tabasco sauce. I remember an American student who liked it so much that she brought some from the US when she came to Japan. Now, she doesn’t have to leave Japan. I found a Sriracha vending machine in Nagoya! A vending machine for hot sauce? I don’t understand. It’s not that popular, is it? I hope that no one mistakes it for a soft drink machine and tries to drink one!    (134 words)
