Honesty Store/無人販売所

This article can be read in about 3 minutes.

Honesty Store: you can see a security camera in the yellow circle and a safe in the yellow square.

Is honesty store common in your country?

This system can be still available, especially in the rural areas.
It’s amazing when it comes to buying local fresh vegetables and fruits.

There is an advanced system using coin locker found in Tokyo.
Each coin locker has a transparent window so that you could see what kind of vegetables are in it.
The prices are shown on the each locker.
Once you choose the items that you would like to buy, you should insert coins to open the window and get them.
It seems much more secured system than the normal honesty store which sometimes installs a security camera.

Aside from vegetables and fruits, what kind of items are sold at honesty store in your country?
