Screw diet coke. Buy the hot Vitimin-C drink in the vending machines, its glorious.

I thought they removed the beer vending machines around 2001-2002? weird.

They have Coke. Coke is easier to find than Pepsi.

You can buy all kinds of crazy crap in vending machines there. Girl's panties for one.

Where in Japan are you?

20 years ago you could buy just about anything in vending machines including beer, wine, whiskey and sake. Vending machines were on every block and road side stop.

Be careful carrying knives.
One can be arrested just for carrying anything with a blade over 6cm.

Find a Family Mart. Its the Japanese equivalent of 7-11.

Damn I miss Japan. Some of the best years of my life were spent there. I had a blast. I enjoy the culture and the people. This thread and those pics make me real nostalgic in a bad way. I haven't been back in 3 or 4 years

Not having Diet Coke is just another addition to the reasons I'd like to go to Japan.

When I was there, they had 7-11's. They also had Lawson's which eventually became Dairy Mart. I thought it was only a mid west region chain. It was really weird to see a Lawson's in Hiroshima.

Had some fun in Japan.... was at Iwakuni for a UDP back from Nov '91 - June '92.

I was stationed there for about 3 years, had a great time. bought a car and drove away from the base, the people were great to Americans.

Have you visited a Yakiniku restaurant? It's usually expensive, but the meat is so worth it. Also try a drink called 'Calpis'. It's a non-carbonated soft drink, but pretty good itself.

I was there for a couple of weeks last year and they did seem to remove the beer vending machines from Tokyo but Kyoto still had them.

It is a superior beverage. Once you get used to it, normal Coke tastes way too sweet.

Do they have Coke Lite? In Europe Diet Coke is called Coke Lite. Do a Google search.

+1 all that corn syrup is nasty tasting. But I hope the alternative isnt to bad for my heath, Diet Coke tastes better but some people say that the artificial sweetner may be bad for you.

No Diet Coke - I guess I can't go to Japan
Link Posted: 3/25/2006 5:02:41 PM EDT
THEY HAVE DIET COKE!!! They have all that kind of crap. They have more American junk than we do !! American stuff is considered hip and cool over there. It's not a 3rd world country -- they do know what diet coke is .

Coke Lite rocks!! I got addicted it to while I was over in France. It's so much better than the Diet Coke crap we get here. I can't remember if they had it in Japan or not. I really didn't drink American cola while I was over there. I drank Calpis and Pocari Sweat and the various other Japanese soft drinks they have.

Nope... never seen that before. Is that from the makers of Calpis? It must be new.

I only drink Diet Coke, both with and without burbon.
As noted, in Europe they have Coke Lite, but it's not really "Lite"(!), that stuff is as sweet as regular Coke in the US! And my German friends don't understand why I won't drink regular European Coke when I'm over there.

-I know they do have regular Diet Coke in Japan, because I have a Japanese Diet Coke can in my collection.
Link Posted: 3/25/2006 6:45:45 PM EDT
Well I got back from Atsugi in February. Ask for Coke Lite. They have that. I love Japan. Cant wait for the next WestPac to come around!
Link Posted: 3/25/2006 6:47:00 PM EDT
Oh! Oh! I have an idea!

Dress up in cheap cowboy regalia, go to downtown Tokyo, stand out in the middle of an intersection waving an American flag! Demand concessions, handouts, and special treatment from the Japanese government! Refuse to speak Japanese, sell drugs, get drunk, hop in a car and run over somebody! Then go to a Japanese emergency room and demand free treatment! IN ENGLISH!

Next, find a Japanese welfare office and get right on that shit! Hopefully you have at least one offspring that you can bring with you so you can enroll him in Japanese school!

After all that, stroll down to some construction site and offer to work for 1/4 Yen per hour!

Be sure to post pics and let us know how it turns out!

Let's see you are in Japan with all those good lookin Asian chickies and you are scrambling for diet Coke?
Link Posted: 3/25/2006 7:10:45 PM EDT
If you're caucasian, or better still, black [and single] it should be rediculously easy to get laid over there.

Put down the mouse, step away from the keyboard, get some fresh air and try to make friends.

If you still want a coke, ask her/them afterwards.
Link Posted: 3/25/2006 7:21:49 PM EDT

I spend about 5 years there in Yokosuka but that was 20 years ago before AIDS.



I miss Japan to. I ran with the samuri Hash House Harriers....

We ran through, over, under and around the Kanto plain. I had a great time.

I miss Japan

Yep. Probably about a total of 13 months over there. It is a different kind of place, especially after you get away from the bases. Definitely you aren't in Kansas anymore.
