The drinking culture in Japan is very similar to the drinking habits in Vegas. As you can see in this photo, the man with glasses is starring at the kids who are playing a game on their iPhones. As you can see, the man with glasses is holding a tall (500ml) can of beer. In Japan, you are allowed to drink almost anywhere. You can simply go to a convenience store and buy just about any alcohol that one desires. There are convenience stores at almost every train station in Japan. Not only will you see men drinking, but you can also see girls and women drinking in public. If you visit Japan, be prepared to see people drinking alcohol in public – it’s completely legal!
