If you like to smoke when you drink, here’s something you should think about: For every drag of your fag, that’s another 5 seconds of your life gone where you could have been drinking beer instead. If that reality doesn’t hit home to you – well, you may as well just go and drink superdry.

The smoke-free movement in Japan is something which I wholeheartedly support.

Thanks to Beer in Japan reader John for suggesting this feature. For those who can read Japanese, the Kinen Style website is an excellent resource for non-smokers, covering a range of categories nationwide.

In order to get a photo of a smoking cigarette for this feature, I had to invite out a friend who is a smoker and go to a non-smoke-free bar. Is that dedication or what? 😉
