Yeah, i really could never ever see this occurring. Possibly Osaka, but nonetheless at the least maybe not for a time that is long. I frequent Japan (pre-covid) and while booze and cigarettes are plenty affordable and it is legal to drink in public, I just couldn’t see Japan getting back on the cannabis train anytime soon. I have a few “hippy” Japanese friends and even they are afraid to smoke. Their reasoning, beyond being extremely illegal, is the potential to ruin their reputation, lose “face”, and not be able to be employed. Some of them will literally travel hours out into the middle of no where to enjoy, but in all the full years i’ve been, no body has ever provided. That is the same as my estimation, guy, but there were times that are many desire I happened to be in a position to smoke cigarettes a joint later during the night by the Kamo River in Kyoto.
