Baseball & Beer in Japan
Asahi is one of the largest brewers of beer in Japan and it owns the concession to sell beer at the Tokyo Dome, a 55,000 seat stadium that is home to the Yomiuri Giants, the most successful baseball team in Japanese history. The Asahi Beer Girls, who sell beer at the Tokyo Dome, are themselves famous. During the games, the girls carry a sizable beer tank on their backs, as one would carry a rucksack, and walk the stadium's steps providing beer to thirsty baseballs fans. Certainly beats the hell out of the usually surly beer servers at American ballparks.
