    Unmanned produce stands are one of the common features of rural areas in Japan. No one steal a thing even unmanned...that's really amazing. If you feel like buying something from the stand, just drop in the amount into the box. Hamazawa people often sell mandarin oranges during winter.

    What to buy: Manderin orange, and vegetables

    What to pay: usually 100-200 yen depending on the products
