Alcohol drink

Do you like alcohol drink? When talking about food, alcohol drink is also an important factor. Well, we’d like to break from explaining alcohol drink in this concrete way and talk loosely about alcohol.

Here, we would like to teach about alcohol drink in Japan.

O-sake (Alcohol drink)

Sake is common to every culture all over the world. And the history of alcohol is quite old, right? The birth of alcohol was probably by accident, when someone tried fermented alcohol and found it delicious. The curiosity of our predecessors… Those alcoholics.
Later on in history… Different delicious alcoholic beverages started being produced.

Surely there are many people who like alcohol, right? After all, there are also unique alcoholic beverages in different cultures. And it’s become a part of a country’s culture.

Japan is a very loose country when it comes to drinking. People seem surprised when they discover this.
First of all, it is possible to sell and purchase alcohol 365 days of the year. There are many 24-hour convenience stores, and they often serve different types of beverages. So basically you can drink anytime and anywhere. It is also possible to order drinks at place such as restaurants and hotels, so long as it’s within business hours. Of course, using your common sense is expected, anytime and anywhere. At place when you’re required to be serious, such as in the city during the day, or at ceremonies or events, and while working. However, it is up to the individual to decide when to drink.

Including everything we just said, it’s not uncommon to see people who are getting nicely drunk, especially after the sun goes down. It’s also possible to see many very, very drunk people.

There are three basic restrictions on alcohol consumption.

・No drinking under the age of 20
・No buying alcohol under 20
・No selling of liquor to people under 20

This age restriction is quite unusual worldwide. The number one reason is because many people who believe in religion, and those who are not religious, are not very strict about drinking. In that sense, this alcohol culture is unique to Japan, whether it is good or bad.

In addition to the fact that there are few restrictions on alcohol, the association alcohol has with food is interesting, right? In Japan, we drink alcohol from almost anywhere in the world. All the sake made in Japan is also very delicious. There are many kinds of alcohol, including beer, whiskey, wine, etc. that are made in Japan (all very delicious!). It seems there are also cases of tourists buying Japan-made alcohol once they return home. But, please enjoy alcohol in moderation. There is a famous phrase “Alcohol is the head of a hundred medicines,” but this feeling passes as well.

We are envious of those who can hold their drink!
