Starbucks in Japan is about so much more than just coffee and tea. Aside from being housed in stunning architecture across the country, Starbucks Japan is famous for its special range of merchandise, with many items that are only available here, like the company’s recent spring cherry blossom collections.
Although Starbucks has been around for 50 years, the coffeehouse chain only entered Japan 25 years ago, setting up its very first location in glitzy Ginza back in 1996. Now, Starbucks operates a whopping 1,600 stores across the country and Tokyo is even home to one of the world’s few Starbucks Reserve Roastery megastores.
To commemorate its 25th birthday, Starbucks Japan is releasing a special anniversary collection featuring limited-edition drinkware and souvenirs. The new range will go on sale in stores and online on Wednesday April 14. To get a sneak peek at what’s coming, check out the entire collection below, along with the price list.
