Loosen your necktie and get ready to drink salaryman-style! Our latest guide covers the nomikai, a big part of Japan’s rich business drinking culture. We go into everything from where you’re supposed to stand in an elevator (really!) to literally throwing drunk people in the air. Give it a read through today!
Hi there! I created and run nomunication.jp. I’ve lived in Tokyo since 2008, and I am a certified Shochu Kikisake-shi/Shochu Sommelier (焼酎唎酒師), Cocktail Professor (カクテル検定１級), and I hold Whisky Kentei Levels 3 and JW (ウイスキー検定３級・JW級). I also sit on the Executive Committees for the Tokyo Whisky & Spirits Competition and Japanese Whisky Day. Click here for more details about me and this site. Kampai!
