Enjoyment for their fans is that they can order a kind of fruit-flavored beverage, such as strawberries, kiwis, green apples, lemons and plums. Believe me, I've tried it and it feels great, different sensations and of course it tastes good.
Chu-Hi drinks are currently popular in Japan, citing CNN Indonesia, today, with the nickname of Japenese Alcopops, and can easily be found in Japanese beverage sellers available along the road in Japan.

Enthusiasm appears on the face of Jorge Garduno, President of Coca-Cola Japan, as quoted by AFP, some time ago.
"We've never experimented in low-alcohol categories, but this is an example of how we continue to explore opportunities outside our core area."
He is more eager to explain their beverage production, his company is trying his luck to market alcohol cola in Japan due to Japanese society culture that is close to alcohol.
"Moreover, cola cans are popular in Japan."
Regardless he has not thought of plans to introduce it in other countries with different environment and customs.
"I do not expect people all over the world to expect to see this kind of thing from Coca-Cola, while many markets are similar to Japanese, but I think the culture here is still very unique and special, so many products born here will stay here."
