Both are very popular. I buy a hot canned coffee and a sandwich from the conbini every morning on the way to school. Had these two laying around in my room.

Ahh I remember that exact brand from my last trip to Japan...I also remember it being rather bitter.

Yes! the black can is「ブラック」と「無糖」 Black, no sugar. I don't buy this very often because it's bitter as you say.
The blue can is a white coffee with「微糖」A little sugar. I think it's quite sweet and delicious!

Tea is traditional, but coffee is trendy.

(And even then, unless you know what you're getting, be sure to order "American coffee", as they're not quite up on the preparation, and prepare it European-style stronger than we do over here.)

When I was there and the places I visited, green tea dominated and it was served with meals at resteraunts as standard free drink.
Matcha flavoured Icecream was everywhere.
Not much black tea and of that there was mostly Dilmah, not Twinnings.
I didn't pay much attention to canned drinks, but I guess coffee has a lot of presence.

I would think Japan would be a land nation. Construction of building foundations sitting atop hot beverages would be very unwise, especially in earthquake prone regions.
