In a Kyoto hotel, pretty obviously built in the 80s, I found a vending machine filled with food boxes.
"Hot Gour-Ben" is epoch making dishes for gourmets. It gets warm in about 8 minutes by a chemical reaction between lime and water. All you have to do is pull a string and eat it.
(I'm pretty sure that Gour-Ben is a combination of gourmet and bento.)
