Japan cracking down so hard on drugs while the Japanese government has the monopoly on tobacco and pushing nicotine addictions always makes me smile.Still, I would buy the beer so I cannot say anything. 🙂

Most of Japanese love beer and cigarettes! They always smoke and drink their beer before having their meal and after meal.
Standing between the Poster/message and the Cigarettes vending machine, the man really chose a nice place to drink his beer. 🙂 Interesting !!

That’s ok. A very easy mistake to make.

Haha! That would be something. A bold new move for tough times.
