Have a drink? Have a chuhai!

When you travel in Japan by bullet trains or the long distance trains, you may see some people drink a canned alcoholic beverage called Chuhai.
Chuhai or Chu-Hi is made with shochu and carbonated water, named from shochu highball. 

You can purchase at kiosk of any train stations, convenience stores, super market and even vending machines. This low alcohol drink is now available for variety of flavors such as, traditional lemon, apple, lychee, grapes, grapefruits, strawberry, you name it and you’ll find one! 

Have a chuhai when you travel Japan by train! (please do not ever drive and drink in Japan, it is very strict now and you’ll lose your license immediately! )
