  • - There's definitely a chance that like,

  • I will starve out here.

  • Drinks.

  • Drinks.

  • It's warm.

  • Popcorn machine.

  • Oh yeah.

  • I might fail.

  • (mellow music)

  • Yo guys, I'm only living off of vending machines today.

  • In Tokyo.

  • You think I'm gonna die or nah?

  • It's nine a.m.

  • I just left my capsule hotel in Shinjuku.

  • And I'm walking around to try

  • to find this first vending machine.

  • And I'm seeing that this is gonna be a lot more difficult

  • than I thought it was gonna be.

  • Every vending machine I've seen so far

  • only has drinks in it.

  • And it's making me nervous 'cause I feel like

  • I'm not gonna be able to find any,

  • any hot food vending machines.

  • Like apparently they're a lot more scarce now

  • than they were back in the day.

  • Now mostly it's just soft drinks and tea and coffee.

  • So I have to figure out how I'm gonna do this, but,

  • we're gonna make it happen, somehow.

  • And I mean almost right on cue,

  • we found a bunch of stuff in here.

  • A bunch of vending machines.

  • But like I said,

  • they are all drinks.

  • I'll grab a coffee and we'll leave it at that.

  • So this is 100 yen.

  • 100 yen.

  • Put that in through there.

  • And let's grab that.

  • Oh.

  • Nice.

  • Ooh.

  • It's actually pretty good.

  • The worst part is as I'm walking through trying

  • to find some food,

  • I'm passing by all of these food places like,

  • oh my god, there's food everywhere.

  • Like I could literally eat anywhere.

  • But I'm still trying to find some stuff

  • from some vending machines like.

  • This is torture so check this out, same street.

  • (upbeat music)

  • They got beans in there.

  • Oh look at this, look at this.

  • Aw man, I might fail.

  • It's been at least like an hour and a half, two hours.

  • I have yet to find some food I can actually eat.

  • See this starting to get real, I can't even lie.

  • It's actually really bright out here right now,

  • like the sun is out.

  • But the weather says it's gonna rain so,

  • I'm very concerned that I don't have an umbrella.

  • So I still have to go find that.

  • It's no food, I don't know what to do.

  • I don't wanna die today.

  • I cracked.

  • I went over to a spot where I knew was like,

  • so many vending machines.

  • And the only thing I'm gonna be able to do right now

  • is just grab some of this soup.

  • I know this is corn, but I don't know what that is.

  • And that's what I want.

  • So that's 130 yen, and I think I'm just gonna like

  • bite the bullet and grab it.

  • Just like to have something in my body 'cause

  • it's one o'clock and I haven't eaten anything.

  • I just been drinking water and coffee

  • and caffeine drinks.

  • Let's just do it, let's just see how it is.

  • Oh.

  • Actually this smells good.

  • It's a couple chunks of something in here, so like,

  • I don't think it's meat, it's probably just onions.

  • But at least I'm getting some type of nutrients,

  • I'm getting something.

  • All right I was right, it was a bunch

  • of onions in there like all at the bottom,

  • so I should've shook it.

  • I guarantee that was a like an instruction on there like,

  • shake well before using, but, I didn't know.

  • Ayaka's gonna be joining me.

  • With some vending machine food.

  • - I'm trying to get uh, oh no!

  • It's sold out.

  • No!

  • No, what should I get then? - Aw man.

  • That sucks. - Shrimp soup?

  • - Wait, shrimp? - Shrimp soup.

  • - [Q] Yeah.

  • All right, let's see.

  • - Okay, I gotta shake it.

  • - [Q] Oh my god, that's what I didn't do earlier!

  • I didn't shake my thing

  • and it was all at the bottom. - That's what it says.

  • That's what it says.

  • - [Q] This is so funny, where does it say that?

  • - [Ayaka] Yep, right here.

  • (speaks in foreign language)

  • Ah, that's right, you don't speak Japanese!

  • - That is good.

  • - So good, right? - Yeah.

  • So good. - Wait, so like,

  • why can't I find any food, I need some hot food.

  • Where's the hot food?

  • - So the hot food, like in the vending machine,

  • it's going to be Akihabara.

  • It's like sort of a nerdy city.

  • The reason is why that

  • nobody has to stop, that's why.

  • Nerdy people in Japan, don't want to come in and get it.

  • So they want to just push it,

  • and they have a lunch, you know?

  • - Sounds like me.

  • It's getting kind of late, I still haven't had like a

  • solid, hot meal.

  • I'm gonna head over to Akihabara right now.

  • All right I jumped off the train in Akihabara.

  • Looking for these sketchy vending machines.

  • Kinda sucks that I feel like I'm 'bout to be lost looking

  • for 'em like,

  • every video I ever seen.

  • Everybody's lost trying to find them.

  • And here I am, same predicament.

  • All right, so this is not what I was looking for, but,

  • I guess this is the canned oden vending machine.

  • So that'll work.

  • Trying to see.

  • I got a feeling it's nasty, but, I'm do it anyway.

  • It feels good to finally have some hot food.

  • This is the canned oden.

  • Gonna see what it stands for.

  • I have no idea what's in here,

  • I probably should've looked that up.

  • Whoa.

  • Okay.

  • Ooh.

  • At this point, it's about survival.

  • I can't be choosy.

  • I wish I knew what I was eating, this is horrible actually.

  • What if I was allergic to something?

  • My game plan now is just to eat and ask questions later.

  • Legit, what the hell is this?

  • (gasps)

  • Oh my (bleep) goodness.

  • I just seen the biggest rat.

  • It's time to go.

  • Oh gosh.

  • All right it's time to try this.

  • I haven't heard good things.

  • Oh.

  • Oh.

  • Oh no.

  • Okay.

  • Oh.

  • This is actually pretty good.

  • What?

  • So this drink is pretty tasty.

  • Like once it's in your mouth.

  • But I truly see the dilemma because

  • once you put it up here, like when it get to your nose

  • and you gotta be smelling and trying to sip,

  • it get real tricky.

  • 'Cause that (bleep) stank.

  • I see this sketchy ass place.

  • And I will agree it looks super sketchy. (laughs)

  • But I mean can't be as sketchy as walking down

  • Hollywood Boulevard, so.

  • Let's get on up in here.

  • We up in the hot spot.

  • It is definitely creepy in here.

  • This is when it gets a little (bleep) sketchy.
