Big Brother Watching You Get a Buzz

"We're watching you 24 hours."

(The kanji on the bottom right of the machine) "Liquor."

Despite the extreme creepiness, I doubt there are any consequences to being filmed on camera while purchasing a can of beer. Not unless the video is being surveilled by people who have immediate access to the police. However, if the police don't want to have to go after a 15-year-old buying drinks, Japan could simply get rid of vending machines selling alcohol. It's not like we don't have 24-hour conbini selling the same things.
