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.
