Japan Korea Real Gold

Having left Matsumoto behind, the next stop on my journey across Japan and Korea was going to be the city of Nagano. The train ride between Matsumoto and Nagano is a little under an hour and while on the train I tried out a Japanese drink that I had seen in vending machines but up until then I had never tried it. That beverage was Real Gold, a carbonated energy drink that comes in a small can. I remember Real Gold tasting kind of like Coca-Cola but with a fruity flavor, which makes sense because Real Gold is manufactured by Coca-Cola Japan. It takes a tremendous amount of caffeine, sugar, or other stimulants to have any effect on my body, so I’m the wrong person to ask about how potent Real Gold is, but I did like the flavor and I’ll definitely have another can whenever I’m next in Japan.
