I mentioned in a previous post that the best vending machine coffee I've ever had was from a road side stop. Just before you enter the Kan-etsu Tunnel is a road side rest area which includes a ramen bar and a shit load of vending machines including the coffee machine that dispensed a reasonably good coffee and, my favourite, the hot food vending machine.

We made a video. An epic 1 min and 4 seconds...
If you click on the map below you can get to Google street view and virtually drive through the tunnel.
