pHr34kY,

It’s weird how exchange rates don’t reflect a person’s hourly worth.

I’m in Australia and a coke from a vending machine on a train station platform is $4.50, which is ¥435 at the current rate. A bottle of water costs the same, because… Coke.

I honestly bought a 600ml ¥100 water in a Kyoto tourist trap in July this year. A vending machine on the street.
