One article, who we surmise was written by someone with a Japanese friend, reports the company's awareness of the usefulness of their product "at the top right of their soup-in-a-can is the company’s endorsement of their product as a hangover helper; a cute cartoon image of a person with a beer glass that says, 'For the alcohol-loving you.'"
The stuff costs around a dollar and will be available only Japan (for now) in train station vending machines and convenient stores. Still better than Crab Juice.
Ancient Japanese secret, huh?!
