Legal Drinking Age and Club Entrance

What is the legal drinking age in Japan? Also, is it different for entering dance clubs? I have a 19 and 20 yr old going to Japan this summer and was curious. Thanks.

Hi highloyo,

>>> What is the legal drinking age in Japan? <<<

The legal drinking age in Japan is 20.

It is legally not different.

Though the legal drinking age in Japan is 20, alcohol may be bought in some unsupervised vending machines.
