"Man's First Cactus Vending Machine" has appeared in Demachiyanagi, Kyoto

Now that we have more time at home, I think many people have started to grow ornamental plants.

March 10 is "Saboten no Hi (cactus day)" in Japan.

It was not only established by a play on words such as "3 (Sabo) 10 (Ten)".

The fact that many cactus flowers bloom in March is one of the reasons the "cactus day" was established.

"Man's First Cactus Vending Machine" has appeared in Demachiyanagi, Kyoto.

Self-proclaimed "world's smallest cactus shop", "Toge-ya".

It is unique that you can buy cactus 24 hours a day even when the shop is closed.

There are various prices, but the vending machine only accepts 500 yen coins or 100 yen coins.

Of course, you can buy cactus in the shop during business hours.

There are a variety of cacti, each with its own size, shape, and thorn characteristics.

It is said that there are relatively many kinds that are easy to grow, so it may be suitable for beginners.

Meeting cactus will make your time at home enjoyable and exciting.
