Canned liquid coffee (缶コーヒー, kan kōhī) is ubiquitous in Japan, with a large number of companies competing fiercely and offering various types for sale.
Japanese canned coffee is already brewed and ready to drink. It is available in supermarkets and convenience stores (コンビニ, kombini), with vast numbers of cans being sold in vending machines that offer heated cans in the autumn and winter, and cold cans in the warm months.
Canned coffee is a Japanese creation. Until it, the Japanese did not have a great variety of beverages to drink when they were out, consuming mainly bottled milk in case they were getting thirsty.
Coffee is huge in Tokyo, it being sold on every street corner. It can be bought hot or cold. Commemorative cans are quite common in Japan, for major events such as the Tokyo Motor Show, sports teams and sporting events, and manga characters.
