I think Japanese drink together a lot. This could be because that we are very suppressed by the society and that drinking together releases the tension.
The rule: “When drinking, any talk is forgiven and forgotten” .
There was another party to welcome newcomers to our research group. I think that the welcome parties are too many this year, but I joined today’s party only to show my face.
It was held at “Bang Bang“.
The party started at 8 PM. I sneaked out before 9 PM and left for home.
