Soft Drink

Canned and Bottled Soft Drinks

In Japan, vending machines can be seen on almost every street. There is a large market for soft drinks, due in part to the extreme heat and humidity of the Japanese summer. In addition to the kind of fizzy drinks also common in the West, a vast range of hugely-popular tea-based drinks exists. These include a variety based on Japanese tea and Chinese tea, which do not contain sugar and therefore go well with food. A range of English tea-based drinks with or without sugar, milk and lemon is also available, and coffee-based drinks are also popular.
