"Sorry that this picture did..." Fukuoka Local Custom Tip by lenoreva

Fukuoka Local Customs: 20 reviews and 33 photos


Sorry that this picture did not turn out very clear. It's a beer vending machine - right out on the street. I doubt such a vending machine would last very long in the USA... In Japan, the drinking age is 18, I believe. Supposedly, no one under 18 will buy beer from these machines because to do so would be breaking the law and one would therefore bring shame upon the family.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
