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.

Well, I'm going to be moving there mid to late twenties, I hope. I'll probably visit sometime after my high school graduation.

Actually.......probably a hope in hell's chance on this end. :D Still, I wish the very best of you luck with your dreams, may they be merry and come true.

Well, the vending machines are usually in relatively non-residential parts of town, out in the open where everyone can see you buying it, or in areas where you wouldn't really expect to find kids hanging out.

They are trying to develop and install cigarrette vending machines, and I assume beer machines, that will recognize a smart card ID. What's a smart card? It is a card with a computer chip embedded that contains all the info. This way you have to scan your ID to buy the cigarettes from a vending machine. Cigarette vending machines are far more prevalent than booze vendors.

But all this being said, Japanese in general are more law abiding and respectful than just about any other population I have experienced.
