Known mainly by its distinctive design, ramune is a lemon-lime carbonated soft drink that was introduced in Japan in 1876. The traditional bottle is made from glass and sealed with a marble on top. It takes a little practice to master the art of drinking ramune, as the marble sometimes blocks the flow of the drink. However, newer versions of the bottle were introduced to counter this problem and now there are many more flavors. Purchase a bottle of fizzy ramune from a yatai during the annual Asagaya Tanabata festival if you want to blend in with the locals.
