Tenga adds first vending machines in Sapporo

HOKKAIDO (TR) – Tenga, Japan’s premier manufacturer of masturbation products, last week opened its first vending machines in Sapporo City.

Located inside a small building in Chuo Ward, the three vending machines dispense a number of different Tenga masturbation products, including the popular Tenga Spinner, the company said in a press release on Monday.

Much like vending machines selling drinks, the Tenga machines are lined up side-by-side behind a curtain at the door announcing “there is Tenga.”

Customers can peruse the rows of items before making a selection. A special system checks each customer’s identification card to ensure that they are 18 years of age or older.

Tenga opened three vending machines featuring its products in Sapporo City on August 1

Previously, customers interested in Tenga products were required to visit a department store, pharmacy or an online shop to make purchases.

Upon its opening on August 1, about 300 customers visited the machines, the release said.
