Japanese beer itself is very nice. A good selection to choose from, not overly expensive, and practically all of it around 5%. Which I can confirm packs a very respectable punch. And when drinking holes serve it super cold and in iced glasses, you could argue that life doesn’t get much better.
Yet remarkably it does.
Go into most bars or shops selling beer, and you’ll be able to buy/drink your beverage of choice whilst having a gander at the tasteful beer posters on display. Most of which consist of young ladies sporting bikinis and clutching beers. All of them presumably waiting for a date with a pot bellied beer drinker.
And just like beer, a second one is always a good idea.
One for the road?
