    Nice place to spend New Year's Day.

    Hey! Canned happiness. Shochu + low-calorie citrus drink = healthy buzz.

    That blue sky and snow capped mountains look crisp.


    Though not as crisp as the can of 9%.

    Drank a can of something similar when I was in Tokyo a couple of years ago.

    Brutal stuff.

    It's zero, but it's a strong zero.

    I have no problem with the Chu-Hi (shochu + highball) product.

    Looks nice (as far as one can tell from two pictures...) if a little bit cold.

    underrated as a tipple

    My daughter goes to school with a lot of high heeled Thai kids and many if them seemed to be off to Japan for the Christmas holidays. I was wondering why... maybe one of the closest destinations to Thailand with snow?

    What made you choose Japan HNZ?

    Japan's been on my list for a while but never seem to get the time. I've visited a lot of Japanese websites and it always makes me think of going one day!

    I work in the sandpit and for a change really wanted cold and green. The wife is in Thailand so logistically that makes northeast Asia a better choice than Europe.

    Fresh potable water burbles up from springs all over the city.

    Snow! What I came here for...

    Matsumoto-img_20200105_070812-jpg

    Just a dusting, mind, but snow nonetheless.
