One thing i really miss from japan are these bad boys. The 8% strong tall cans though. I was wondering if there is a way to import some? I've been trying to browse google and I guess my skills are lacking. Anyone have advice on how to aquire them?

Make friends with someone that travels to japan often and coerce them into bringing you some back.

i have two cases of the stuff sitting in my garage right now and i treasure it. i have looked long and hard for it in the states and have yet to find a vendor. chu-hi could take this country by storm if only someone would have the balls to import it.

Well judging by the picture, it's an alcoholic drink. Have you never seen liquor before?

Well i'm in the Navy and fortunately for me I still have some friends stationed there. You brought up a great point that i neglected to think of. Stupidity on my part. Hopefully i'll have 10 cases asap. Also anyone reading this and haven't tried these before...well i strongly recommend it.

Yep, I like 'em but not enough to probably have a thread about them. I could go and buy one right now at the lawson next to my house, but it's so damn cold outside :(

Yes and they are perfect for long train rides :P Usually at the big stops you have time to go snag one from the vendor on the terminal platforms. Good times haha

Rapid-fire cans of this and Suntory's Strong Zero have totally ruined (awesomized?) an assortment of my evenings way faster than I could have ever anticipated. I swear it takes me longer to get shitfaced drinking whiskey than it does these deceptive fucks.
