So there’s a lot of food to try in Japan. And with food comes drinks also. Here are some drinks you can expect to find in Japan.
I love milk tea! And there’s no shortage of selection of the stuff here. Different flavors, dosage of tea or milk, limited editions, and even ones that come with a cool collapsible straw.
Some of the more uniquely Japanese drinks. Lots of lychee stuff.
Can’t forget about tea also!
These drinks are more like dessert than drinks that helps with your thirst. Coffee and strawberry jelly. They were really sweet!
Of course… Can’t mention about drinks in Japan without mention Calpis and all the other yogurt drinks they have. Skal (earlier in the post) is also one of these sort of drinks.
This is probably the strangest drink I had so far. It is exactly what you see on the picture: a milky drink version of a daifuku (mochi with read beans and strawberry in this case). So it taste just like the real thing… but liquid form.Complete with the powdery aftertaste. What can I say? Curiosity got the best of me.
Lastly, tap water. I drink about a liter of tap water a day. The people of Osaka are very proud of their tap water and glorified how good and perfectly safe it is to drink. And I totally agree with them; tap water in Japan (or at least in Osaka) has no “tap water” taste to it so it feels very refreshing to drink unlike tap water in America (which you should definitely boil before drinking). That’s just what I think.
More in the future!
