1. With a ring. You’ll need a good, sturdy one, like a class ring, to get this to work. While holding the bottle, approach it with your ringed hand at a 45 degree angle, so that the bottom of your ring makes contact with the bottle cap. Clasping your hand over and around the neck of the bottle in order to maximize the amount of pressure you exert where the ring meets the bottle cap. Roll your wrist forwards while continually applying pressure.

2. With a lighter. You’ll need a sturdy plastic lighter for this one. Metal or cheap plastic ones aren’t much use. Wrap one of your hands completely around the neck of the bottle, covering the bottle cap. Slide the lighter underneath the bottle cap while maintaining the seal over as much of the rest of the cap as possible. Push down with the lighter until the cap comes off.

3.  With a ¥100 bill. Fold the bill in half. Roll it up as tightly as possible, then fold the roll in half. Hold the bill in place between your thumb and your index finger. Place the folded corner under the ridge of the bottle cap while holding the bottle around the neck. Push up with the folded bill until you hear the pop.
