Question about drinking age in Japan

Can anyone help me with a question about the legal drinking age in Japan please?
I know the age to purchase alcohol is 20, but what about drinking at home or at private functions? Can those underage drink or is it frowned upon?

Also what are the rules in resturants if someone over 20 is doing the buying? In the UK if you're 16 or 17 you're not allowed to buy the alcohol, but in a resturant you can have wine, beer or cider if an adult is buying it.

Thanks for any assistance.

I've written nearly 12,000 words for mmom so far and I haven't finished one of the 13 fics I've started yet. Not one character has got off yet; this is clearly not right. Note to self; kick the butterfly mind into shape and finish at least the few few fics. I don't even have the excuse of hormones now - I've just been having too much fun writing the set ups ;).
