File under Anecdotes, pt 4.

Ya know what, it's ok to go out and have a good time involving alcohol. Sometimes you get a new job or a promotion and you want to celebrate by having a drink or two more than you normally would. I have heard in Japanese business culture there is a common ractice where superiors and their staff will get together for a drinking meeting. The purpose of this meeting is after a superior and their staff have all had a drink everyone is on level ground and anyone can say what they would like and there can hopefully be an open line of communication.

Other times you run into random kids from Germany and learn what their drinking culture is like.

I cannot stress the importance of writing things down after you've been out and having a good time however.......

Hopefully your bartender can supply you with a pen and a coaster upon request.

I do that all the time, and I'm only 1/2 Japanese.
