I was walking in one this area in Yurakucho, Tokyo. I came across this Mc Donald’s dedicated smoking room. Customers who want to smoke and eat have the option to do so after buying their meal.
Lets name these burgers in this room the “smoke burger” or something. At least this Mc Donald’s tried to separate the smoking area and non-smoking area. I remember when I was little living in Japan, it was really tough to find a place to eat without distraction from smokes.
Although restaurants are trying to take more measures against smokers in restaurants, still in most of the restaurants in Japan, people are able to smoke in the restaurant regardless of what others say. That’s the sucky part about this country. Given that population is declining big time, maybe it would be wise for government to ban smoking.
