Jollys is a basically a bottle store in which you can consume the product as soon as you’ve bought it. The good news is that the bottles available are extraordinarily good. Beers available in the refrigerators include Sierra Nevada, Rogue, Green Flash, Lost Coast, Belching Beaver and Karl Strauss. There are also regular beers, spirits, chu-hi and non-alcoholic drinks available. The best thing is that the cans and bottles are all available at regular bottle shop prices, so you can sip top class local and international brands for ¥400 to ¥700.

Food is of the convenience store/beer snack variety: cheese and crackers, dried meat and chips are popular picks.
