There is no drinking age for foreigners unless you look like a twelve year old. I assume that all Japanese automatically think you are an English teacher or a college student. But the legal age is twenty in case you were wondering.
And if you have trouble buying it at a store, just find a beer vending machine. I swear to you I saw one last week that sold the one liter cans of Asahi. It was massive.
