Yo-Kai Launches Ramen Vending Machine at Haneda Airport in Japan
The machine is located on the first floor of Terminal 2.
Yo-Kai Express, which makes a hot ramen dispensing vending machine, is now installed at Japan’s Haneda Airport outside of Tokyo.
The Yo-Kai is located on the first floor of Terminal 2 with meals costing 790 yen (~$6.55 USD at today’s exchange rate)
The move further illustrates the importance of airports as a target location for smart vending machine startups.
We’ve known since last fall that Yo-Kai was going to open up one of its ramen vending machines at Haneda — and now that time has finally arrived. Travelers at Haneda can now enjoy a hot bowl of (delicious) ramen 24 hours a day if they visit the first floor of Terminal 2.
Airports are a key location for smart vending kiosks like Yo-Kai’s. Airports are filled with lots of people who want food quickly — the perfect scenario for a robot. Airports are also a deep part of Yo-Kai’s DNA.
