hey guys,
ive read that the drinking age is 20 in japan, is that right? so to enter a club you'll have to be 20 years old? what sort of ID do i need to carry to get checked out? would my Australian drivers license be ok? or would i have to carry my passport
Thanks in advanced.

As the above poster said, you must be 20 or older to drink. I am pretty sure this means you must be at least 20 to get into a club. I have only been asked for ID a handful of times in the hundreds of times I have been to clubs. An ID from your own country probably won't be accepted and so you should take your passport.

I just checked Womb Shibuya's website, and their PDF flyer clearly states that you need to be 20 or older, and bring photo ID with you.
